WSOC-TV in Charlotte, NC, is reporting that suspended NASCAR driver Jeremy Mayfield was indicted today for possession of stolen property, in the aftermath of a Nov. 1 raid on his Catawba, NC home. 

The "Sirius/XM Speedway" program says Catawba County Sheriff's deputies executed a search warrant at Mayfield's home last Nov. 1, after receiving a tip that there was stolen property inside the residence. Once inside, deputies discovered approximately 1.5 grams of methamphetamine and a number of items believed to be stolen.

He was charged only with possession of methamphetamine at the time, pending verification that the items were indeed stolen. Sheriff's deputies also confiscated approximately 50 guns.  

Mayfield’s attorney said at the time that his client was unaware of more than $100,000 in stolen property found in an out-building and storage trailers on his property, or the drugs discovered in a safe in his home. Authorities have continued to investigate the case, saying additional charges were likely. Today, Mayfield was indicted on three counts of possession of stolen goods and one count of obtaining property by false pretenses. He remains free on $3,000 bond. 

Mayfield was suspended indefinitely from NASCAR after failing a random drug test in May of 2009, but has steadfastly maintained his innocence, claiming his test results were falsely skewed by his use of Adderall prescribed for Attention Deficit Disorder and the over-the-counter allergy medication Claritin D. He has accused NASCAR of altering the results of his drug test and failure to follow proper drug screening protocol.

Teres Minor-

He already had a woman. He had/has a wife. I don't know if she was involved in the meth addiction too but we can tell she hasn't really helped stop him from his addictions.

What a moron

This story gets worse and worse as time goes by.  This kid had talent, and he had a great life ahead of him.  So, what did he do?  He blew it because meth became more important to him than racing.  There are so many fans who would give various organs and body parts to have the honor of being behind the wheel of a Sprint Cup car, that it is unfathomable to many that anyone would wiz away the chances that Mayfield did.  

He not only had talent, but he had charisma, too.  He could very easily have been a star in this sport.  When he is rotting in a jail cell for the next few years, I wonder if he will realize just how much he has thrown away with his behavior?  He could have had "the life:" money, fame, women, a large house on a considerable piece of land.  Instead, he will get a lover named Bubba and an 8 X 8 cell, or whatever the dimensions are.  

Yuck.

If he's not willing to seek help himself, prison time may force him off meth and save his life. If dope don't kill him, whoever he tries to pin the stolen property and guns rap on, will get him.
