Alleged Meth Head Busted Trying to Sell Fictitious Weed to Kids at Pinal County Fair
An alleged meth head was arrested on Friday after trying to sell some weed to a group of kids at the Pinal County Fair. The suspect didn't actually have any weed, but he did have a pocket full of crystal meth, an assault rifle, and a shotgun.
About 10 p.m. Friday, a kid reported to a Pinal County sheriff's deputy that a man in a purple Crown Royal shirt tried to sell him and his friends weed.
The deputy located the suspect as he was driving out of the Fair Ground's parking lot and stopped him.
According to the deputy, the suspect, 19-year-old Cayton Lee Hart, was acting nervous when approached by authorities.
The deputy asked Hart if he'd tried to sell any kids weed while at the fair. He denied it, and exited the vehicle to continue speaking with the cop.
The deputy asked Hart if he had any drugs on him, at which point Hart started bashing his head against his own truck until the deputy stopped him and placed him in handcuffs.
Way to play it cool, brah.
Once cuffed -- and after he stopped bashing his head against the truck -- Hart told the deputy he had some crystal meth in his pocket.
In addition to the meth found in Hart's pocket, the deputy found an SKS assault rifle and a shotgun inside the truck.
Hart was booked into the Pinal County jail on one count of possession of a dangerous drug, and two counts of weapons offense involving drugs.
