Antoine Dodson has been "snatched up" by police.

The Internet sensation was arrested in Huntsville, Ala., early Saturday morning for possession of marijuana.

According to TMZ, Dodson was taken into police custody around 2:30 a.m. and booked for the misdemeanor charge. Cops also charged Dodson for two traffic offenses – speeding and driving without insurance.



Dodson became famous when he appeared on a local news report after an intruder came into his Alabama home and attacked his sister in the middle of the night. During an on-camera interview, Dodson told a reporter, "Well, obviously we have a rapist in Lincoln Park. He's climbing in yo' windows; he's snatching yo' people up, trying to rape 'em. So, y'all need to hide yo' kids. Hide yo' wife and hide yo' husband because they're raping everybody out here."

The video quickly went viral on YouTube. When the Gregory Brothers (of Auto-Tune the News fame) remixed his outburst, Dodson became a Web superstar. The result, "Bed Intruder Song," even made it onto Billboard's Hot 100 list and Dodson was named one of PEOPLE.com's best Internet memes of 2010.
