Where exactly is Big Brother recruiting its contestants from? First, Season 9 winner Adam Jasinski was arrested for allegedly selling a boatload of oxycodone. Then fellow Season 9 alum Matt McDonald was busted for allegedly beating up his girlfriend and subsequent witness intimidation.

And now it turns out that Big Brother 3 participant Tonya Paoni has been arrested in Illinois for reckless homicide, after allegedly getting in a drunken car crash that killed two people.

According to police, Paoni—who now goes by the name Tonya Casper—drunkenly rear-ended an SUV on Interstate 72 outside of Springfield, instantly killing a passenger in the SUV and setting off a chain of events that left another person dead.

Tonya, 43, was arrested on May 27 and charged with aggravated DUI, reckless homicide, reckless driving and speeding. Currently being held on $1,000,000 bond in Sangamon County Jail, Paoni is due in court July 19.
