Austin, who has worked with a number of platinum selling artists including TLC, Boyz 2 Men, Michael Jackson and Madonna, was reportedly en route to a birthday party for supermodel Naomi Campbell when authorities arrested him for possession of an unknown drug allegedly for personal use. Austin has retained attorneys Qays Hatem Al Zu’bi of Bahrain and Mohammad Al Reda of the United Arab Emirates to represent him in court when his trial commences next month. Al Zu’bi issued a statement saying “The suspect, who is married and a father of four children, was visiting Dubai for tourism and to attend some music concerts.”
