A “Breaking Bad” super fan who won a contest to meet the cast last September better call Saul — or, better yet, a real-life lawyer — because he was arrested on drug charges after a drug bust on New Year’s Eve.

Ryan Lee Carroll of San Carlos Park, Fla. (of course this happened in Florida) was arrested for the possession and intent to distribute synthetic marijuana, NBC 2 reports. Back in September, Carroll won a contest to meet Walter White, Jesse Pinkman and other cast members of the hit AMC drama about a former chemistry teacher turned meth kingpin.

“It’s just so addicting,” Carroll said at the time about “Breaking Bad,” not synthetic marijuana. “It’s such a good show. I think its addicting because people can relate to the main character.”

Carroll clearly related to Mr. White a little too much since he is suspected to be the ringleader behind a marijuana ring that produced and shipped drugs out of three different Florida homes.
