At the time of arrest he released a statement to TMZ saying, "I know they don't mess around in Louisiana and I wouldn't do anything to make me go to the big house. Especially on Christmas night." Flip also claimed that he didn't possess marijuana, but instead Black and Mild cigars and clove cigarettes. A pre-trial date has been set for April.
