Florida's Real Life Breaking Bad: Fan Allegedly Moved $1 Million in Drugs
One Florida man has proven that he's the ultimate Breaking Bad superfan.
Fort Myers' resident Ryan Lee Carroll won a raffle to watch the season finale of the AMC series alongside its castmembers last September. But his love for the show didn't stop there. Police have charged Carroll with running over $1 million in drugs from his Lee County home.
Guess he just wasn't Heisenberg material.
The Associated Press reports that Carroll was arrested on New Year's Eve after police made a bust of over $1 million in synthetic marijuana made using a cement mixer. Carroll allegedly sold the drugs from his home in Fort Myers, and shipped the goods via the regular ol' U.S. Postal Service.
Neighbors of Carroll's have reportedly expressed shock at the developments. Please, please let one of them be named Carol.
Of course, none of this should be much of a surprise. After winning the finale raffle, Carroll told news outlets, "It's such a great show. I think it's addicting because people can relate to the main character."
No offense, bro, but we think you might be more of a Jesse.
