He was later charged with drug paraphernalia, DUI, operating an uneffective equiptment, no seat belt, and I think he had drugs in his car. Those are the charges in Arkansas they haven't charged him yet in Missouri. But don't worry I will maked this kid pay! He could have killed me, he was going 70m.p.h.
