MIAMI — Police say a K-9 dog smelled drugs on Grammy-winning OutKast rapper Big Boi as he was getting off a cruise ship in Miami.

A warrant from Sunday’s arrest released Monday says customs agents patted down the 36-year-old rapper, whose real name is Antwan Patton, and found Ecstasy and Viagra pills and a cigarette roller with marijuana residue. Patton was also accused of carrying MDMA, which is the main ingredient in Ecstasy.

Big Boi was charged with three counts of possession of a controlled substance and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia. The rapper was released on $16,000 bond.

Phone and email messages left with his publicists were not immediately returned.

The Atlanta-based group OutKast won six Grammys and churned out six platinum-plus albums, including “Speakerboxxx/The Love Below.”
