Real Life Walter White Gets Busted For Meth
A Montana man by the name of Walter White — yes, as in the meth-dealing protagonist namesake of the show Breaking Bad — was sentenced on Monday to 12 years in prison for ... you guessed it ... dealing meth.
Senior U.S. District Judge Don Molloy gave White, 53, nine years on a drugs possession charge and three consecutive years for a firearms conviction.
White dealt the meth out of his home, where he was found to have 32.5 pounds of the substance — an "extraordinary" amount, Molloy said.
The search began in January after White was shot outside of his home by his son, Brandon, over a drug debt. According to the Billings Gazette, Molloy said, "He ended up getting shot by his son ... 32.5 pounds of methamphetamine coupled with guns and violence is about as serious as you can get."
He was arrested in March and pleaded guilty. He broke bad and he knew it.
