QUESTION: Whatever happened to the rapper from Vallejo who was picked out of the line at Sac International Airport by TSA agents and found to have ecstasy pills taped to his inner leg?
Submitted by: Elan, Sacramento
ANSWER: Vallejo rapper Steven Noel Davison -- also known as "PSD," "PSD the Drivah" and "Stevie Dee" -- was arrested on federal drug charges July 14, 2008, after he was selected for a security screening as he tried to board a flight to Oklahoma at Sacramento International Airport.
According to news accounts, Transportation Security Administration agents were patting Davison down when they felt a large bulge inside his right pants leg. He was escorted to a private screening area, where a Sacramento County sheriff's deputy found $5,600 in $100 bills in his front pocket.
The bag in his pants leg was found to contain 1,000 ecstasy pills, and a TSA screener later found 5,000 more pills in a room where Davison had briefly been left unattended before the search, authorities said.
According to U.S. District Court online records, Davison pleaded guilty to one count of possession with intent to distribute MDMA, commonly known as ecstasy. He was sentenced in October 2011 to 46 months in prison, followed by 36 months of supervised release.
