Not only was Big Brother 9 arguably one of the worst seasons of the show’s franchise but it also produced some of the show’s dumbest alums.
TMZ is now reporting that Matthew McDonald has pled guilty to conspiracy to distribute Oxycodone. And yes, this is in connection to the giant drug ring founded by his former BB costar and winner of season 9, Adam Jasinski.
Matthew had pleaded not guilty when he was first arrested back in April 2010. According to cops, the entire drug ring was funded with some of the $500,000 winnings of Adam.
Matthew will remain in custody until his April sentencing. His partner in crime Adam, who pleaded guilty last October, is scheduled for sentencing this Wednesday in a Massachusetts federal court.
Meanwhile, charges are still pending against Matthew for allegedly beating up his then pregnant girlfriend last April.
First came news that the 26-year-old Matt, who appeared on Big Brother’s season nine back in 2008, was arrested for beating up his 8 weeks pregnant girlfriend. According to the cops involved in the case, Matt’s GF told them the two began arguing after he accused her of cheating on him, which then led to things getting violent.
Matt’s GF told cops he began strangling her and yelling, “I hope the baby dies and hope u [sic] have a miscarriage.” The violence then continued into the next day when Matt accused her of pouring water in his plasma TV — and then proceeded to kick her in the collarbone, put her in a headlock, and began punching her in the arms.
The officers observed visible bruising on the GF’s arms, neck and collarbone, and proceeded to arrest Matt. Fortunately, the GF did not lose her baby.
And then just days after his arrest, TMZ reported Matt was arrested once again for witness intimidation after his GF told cops he was trying to scare her into dropping the charges. Matt and his family members allegedly spent 2 days trying to intimidate the accuser and her family. Matt reportedly called his fiance from jail, a total of 4 times in 48 hours, demanding her to drop the charges against him.
And finally, for his third arrest in a span of 2 weeks, Matt was indicted Tuesday afternoon for conspiracy to distribute oxycodone, and get this, the cops believe he was working with his former Big Brother co-star Adam Jasinski. You know, the season 9 IDIOT winner who was arrested in October 2009 for using his $500,000 Big Brother winnings to fund a large oxycodone distribution ring.
Cops believe Matt was also involved in the drug ring from April 2008 to October 2009. Matt faces up to 20 years in prison and a $1 million fine if convicted of the drug charges alone.
