In other news, Walter White was convicted of dealing in meth and drew a 12-year jail term.
Like the Bryan Cranston antihero-turned-villain, White allegedly dabbled in the illicit crystal trade. Federal court records show that the DEA found four ounces of meth at White’s Billings, Montana home earlier this year. Afterwards, White reportedly “copped to receiving up to two pounds of meth a week from one supplier,” “accepting a firearm as payment for the drug,” selling some of the meth and fronting some of the drug “to others for distribution.” The Smoking Gun reports that White slept with a gun under his pillow as “protection from other individuals involved in drug trafficking who may intend to rob or shoot him.”
White was also sentenced to five years probation after jail and to forfeit over $15,000 in cash and two handguns. Criminally, the report does not note whether White was familiar with AMC’s Emmy-winning drama and its similarly named, similarly career-situated lead character.
Next guy I meet named Don Draper, I’m going to ask if that’s his real name.
