I was born in southern Virginia, so I can say that. Some of my best friends are drugged-out, gun-toting white people.
I’m guessing former NASCAR driver Jeremy Mayfield never thought he’d end up on half a page of TMZ, but here we are — 42-year-old who hasn’t raced in NASCAR since 2009 after failing a drug test (and failing nearly every drug-related thing after that) was arrested in North Carolina last night after cops say they found methamphetamine, stolen racing equipment and over 40 guns in his house. Yikes. If you need more clues to the kind of guy Mayfield is, he was last in the news back in April when five of his dogs attacked a mail carrier. Hooray for substantiated stereotyping!
As we previously reported, cops had searched the home on a warrant after receiving a tip about stolen property inside Mayfield’s pad. Captain [Joel] Fish says cops seized all sorts of items they believe to have been stolen — including Red Bull Racing gear, commercial sound equipment and industrial machinery. Cops also claim they found 1.5 grams of methamphetamine inside the house.
Mayfield was arrested for felony possession of meth. He was released after posting $3,000 bond.
To his credit, if I had access to a Red Bull promotional speedsuit I’d have stolen it, too. Honestly, my biggest concern is what Captain Fish (who sounds awesome) and TMZ consider “industrial machinery”. Like, did Mayfield somehow sneak a smelter in his home? Maye that’s how they qualify meth labs, and he had an assembly line or something. I don’t know, I don’t do meth.
