The 36-year-old Ypsilanti Township man arrested in October after police say they caught him cooking methamphetamine in the front seat of a Mustang convertible was arraigned on drug charges in the matter Tuesday.

Jeremy David Bryant was charged with maintaining a methamphetamine lab, delivery or manufacture and possession of methamphetamine for the Oct. 1 incident.

Bryant faces identical charges from an incident in May when police discovered a number of drug-making-related items at a mobile home police said Bryant occupied in the 9000 block of Geraldine Street in Ypsilanti Township.

He was scheduled to appear in court on those charges when he was arrested the day before on Oct. 1. Police said Bryant had turned the front seat of his Mustang into a meth lab. The car was parked in front of a family member's home in the 7900 block of Briarbrook Drive in Ypsilanti Township.

At that time, police told charges would not be filed for that incident until lab results were complete. A preliminary examination was scheduled for Dec. 4 in that matter.

Bryant remains in the Washtenaw County Jail on $25,000 cash or surety bond.

The hood is much quieter without the drug raids.

You don't do meth in a mustang. This is so totally wrong. An old toyota maybe, but not a mustang. I'm surprised he didn't start a car fire.

Anyone surprised??

What did the Zen Master say to the mobile meth lab vendor? "Make me one with everything"

So did he figure the mustang was faster than the 'mobile' home in got caught in last time ?

I don't always cook meth in my car. But when I do, I move to the back seat.

Speeding with style.

The ending line should be: But when I do, I prefer a convertible Mustang. Cook well my friend.

Didn't this fellow ever watch a single episode of Breaking Bad? Well, maybe he only saw the parts which showed the Breaking Bad Guy counting his money. ;-) It's tough to make a fortune in the illegal drug trade these days. If the government would only stop pestering these entrepreneurs, all would be well. (Or NOT.)

HA! Clearly he watched the wrong episode.
