Matty pled not guilty to conspiracy to distribute oxycodone

Big Brother 9‘s Matthew McDonald was “arraigned Wednesday after being indicted Tuesday on a charge of conspiracy to distribute oxycodone,” and pled not guilty, the AP reports.

Citing “a person familiar with the investigation,” the AP reports that “authorities allege that McDonald supplied oxycodone to ‘Big Brother 9’ winner Adam Jasinski.” Adam also pled not guilty and was released on bail into rehab.

Matty’s lawyer James Cipoletta said, “He and Mr. Jasinski were on the reality show together. Federal court is the ultimate reality show, but the information given to the government is pure fiction.” He didn’t comment about the charges that Matty beat his pregnant girlfriend and then made threats.
