The ninth-season winner of the reality TV show "Big Brother" is headed to court in Boston to face drug charges. Adam Jasinski, of Delray Beach, Fla., is charged with attempting to sell 2,000 oxycodone pills. A federal drug agent says the 31-year-old told him that he had been using his prize money from the CBS show to buy thousands of oxycodone pills and resell them along the East Coast.

Jasinski won $500,000 on "Big Brother 9" in April 2008. He was arrested at a strip mall in North Reading, Mass., last weekend after he allegedly showed a government witness a sock containing two plastic bags filled with oxycodone. He is to appear in U.S. District Court on Thursday afternoon for a detention hearing.
