Antoine Dodson Busted for Pot Possession

Taylor Hill/Getty Images(HUNTSVILLE, Ala.) -- Internet sensation Antoine Dodson was arrested in Alabama Saturday on charges of marijuana possession and four other misdemeanor offences.

Dodson, 24, was pulled over early Saturday morning in Huntsville, Ala., on speeding charges and was booked at approximately 2:30 a.m. He was charged with misdemeanor possession as well as speeding and failure to appear in court on previous warrants, according to The Huntsville Times.

Dodson was released on bond Sunday, but still faces a year in jail on the charges, the Madison County Sheriff's Department said.

A message posted on Dodson's Twitter account around 11:30 a.m. read: "Let me be the first to tell it!! So just got out of jail off a weak charge. LmaORoTfF!!!!!"

Dodson rose to fame after a local news report featuring his rant directed towards the man who broke into his sister Kelly Dodson's bedroom - with the now-famous phrase "Hide ya wives, hide ya kids!" -- went viral on the Internet.

Antoine Dodson, 'Double Rainbow Guy' to Star in Movie

Photo Courtesy - Taylor Hill/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- They already made it big on the computer screen, so can YouTube's viral sensations succeed on the silver screen? Producer Andrew Fischer thinks so.

The CEO of Colorado-based marketing company NURV has recruited Antoine Dodson of "Bed Intruder Song" fame, "Double Rainbow Guy" Paul Vasquez and a handful of other Internet video personalities to star in a feature film-length movie called The Chronicles of Rick Roll.

As meme-watchers may notice, the name of the movie refers to an infamous Rick Astley Internet prank. But Fischer said the movie itself is no hoax -- there is indeed a real script and the actors are indeed getting paid.

"The movie will be not what people are expecting at all. ...Granted the title makes people a little wary of being pranked," he said. "It's not going to feel like a spoof movie...It certainly will be humorous, but more in an ironic sense."

Fischer declined to disclose details on his "epic comedy," which he hopes to release in theaters once a distributor signs on. But he emphasized that the movie is legitimate and was written with his cast of YouTube sensations in mind.

In addition to Dodson and Vasquez, the movie features YouTube greats Ben Schulz ("Leeroy Jenkins"), Brian Collins ("Boom Goes the Dynamite"), Stephen Quire ("Greatest Freakout Ever") and Gary Brolsma ("Numa Numa").

Though a short trailer is making the rounds online, the movie still has a ways to go before it reaches a theater audience. Fischer declined to say when he hopes to release the final product, but said a longer trailer (which will tease even more of the movie) will hit the Web in the next week or two.
