An Alabama man who became an “accidental” Internet sensation last year has been arrested, TMZ.com reports.
Antoine Dodson was reportedly stopped by police Sunday in his home town of Huntsville, Ala., for violating a local noise ordinance by playing his music too loud, the story says. A subsequent warrant check allegedly revealed that Dodson had failed to make a court appearance on a marijuana charge dating back to April, and he was taken into custody, according to the story.
Dodson became instantly famous during summer 2010 after an interview he gave to NBC affiliate WAFF-TV was Auto-Tuned and became one of the most-watched Internet videos of all time. The interview followed a break-in in which an alleged “bed intruder” attempted to rape Dodson’s sister, and the Auto-Tuned version became known as the “Bed Intruder Song.”
The highly animated interview included quotes that became part of a popular cultural phenomenon, such as “They rapin’ errbody out here,” the story points out.
Dodson was reportedly released in the latest incident after posting a $516 bond.
