The infamous "run and tell that" star Antoine Dodson pleaded not guilty to a series of misdemeanor charges on Monday. Dodson was pulled over last Saturday morning while driving his Mercedes-Benz E-Class in Alabama and charged with several accounts, including possession of marijuana, failure to appear on a traffic charge, failure to have car insurance and speeding. Dodson was released on $500 bail and is due back in court in July.

The Internet star took to Twitter to defend himself, saying, "Let me be the first to tell it!!! So just got out of jail off a weak charge. LmaORoTfF!!!!! Got pulled over in my Benz and they got me. Damn!! I never been in jail except that time in grade school. You remember!!!" Dodson claims he recently purchased the Mercedes and that the police are "Dumb azzez" for thinking he didn't have insurance. 

This guy never ceases to entertain us. We wonder if his newfound celebrity powers can get him out of this one.
