Walter White Nabbed

JANUARY 24--A Florida Man named Walter White was arrested Wednesday and charged with violating terms of a probation sentence he received last month following his conviction on a felony methamphetamine charge, records show.

White, 29, was collared by Lake County Sheriff’s Office deputies in connection with a warrant issued in neighboring Polk County, where White was convicted in December of possessing meth and drug paraphernalia.

At White’s December 10 sentencing, he was placed on probation for 18 months and ordered to pay fines and court costs. Special conditions of his probation include a 10 PM to 6 AM curfew, random urinalysis testing, and an alcohol ban.

Court records do not indicate how White allegedly violated terms of his probation.

Seen above, White was arrested in November when sheriff’s deputies searched a Winter Haven residence as part of a follow-up investigation of a child welfare case “involving narcotics.”

When a deputy entered a bathroom, he found White on the toilet holding a loaded syringe containing methamphetamine (White subsequently admitted that he was “shooting dope”). After cops found a bag of meth, syringes, a digital scale, and “glass bulbous pipes” on the living room couch, White admitted ownership of the items.

White is being held without bond in the Lake County jail in advance of a January 29 court appearance.

A booking sheet shows that White has an assortment of tattoos across his body. An inventory reveals that White has the name Skylar inked on his left arm. In the television show “Breaking Bad,” which stars Bryan Cranston as chemistry teacher-turned-meth kingpin Walter White, the character’s wife is named “Skyler.” (1 page)
