Alabama — The problem with being a viral star is that everyone knows when you get in trouble, too.
Antoine Dodson, the viral sensation who shot to fame when he jumped in on a local news report and screamed “Hide ya kids, hide ya wife!” was arrested early Saturday morning in Huntsville, Alabama on a charge of misdemeanor marijuana possession. He was also hit with a number of other charges, including speeding and failing to show up to court for a previous traffic violation.
Dodson was soon released.
Dodson, who has put out a number of spoof songs and made numerous TV appearances since his surprise rise to fame, is set to star in a film with other YouTube-made stars, a comedy called “The Chronicles of Rick Roll.”
