Adam Jasinski is apparently finding life in the big house a bit more difficult than life in the Big Brother house.

The Big Brother ninth-season winner has filed court papers asking for his release from prison after he was arrested last month in Massachusetts for attempting to sell 2,000 oxycodone pills as part of a drug trafficking operation he allegedly operated, TMZ reported Wednesday.

In the documents, Jasinski claims he's willing to live with his parents, wear an electronic-monitoring bracelet, relinquish has passport and undergo mental health and substance abuse counseling as conditions of a potential release, according to TMZ.

In addition, the filings state that Jasinski -- who is currently awaiting trial -- plans on "calling into question the veracity of the cooperating government witness" and claiming that his arrest involved "entrapment and outrageous government conduct," TMZ reported.

The documents also reportedly attempt to use Jasinski's minor celebrity status as a defense.  According to the filing, the government's claim that he flew to Massachusetts specifically to sell drugs is "illogical given Jasinski's high public profile."

The 31-year-old Delray Beach, FL resident was arrested on October 17 after flying to Boston and attempting to sell the drugs to a Drug Enforcement Administration witness.

According to an affidavit DEA Special Agent Todd Prough filed, the witness -- reportedly a local drug dealer who had been arrested earlier in October -- met Jasinski at Logan International Airport and then drove to a North Reading, MA strip mall where DEA agents arrested Jasinski after he pulled the pills from a sock stuffed in his pants.

The witness set up the drug buy via an October 8 phone call to Jasinski, according to the affidavit, which added Jasinski stated he had used his $500,000 Big Brother cash prize to bankroll his drug dealing and boasted that he has been "obtaining thousands of pills of oxycodone" which he's sold "to customers all along the East Coast" during the few several months.

Jasinski was charged with possession of oxycodone pills with intent to distribute and faces a maximum of 20 years in jail and a $1 million fine if convicted. He was subsequently ordered held without bail.
