A Florida man who won a contest to watch the finale of hit drama Breaking Bad with the cast was arrested on New Year's Eve (31Dec13) and charged with masterminding a drug distribution operation. Police in Fort Myers claim Ryan Lee Carroll shipped synthetic marijuana across the U.S. from his home in the city. Authorities seized more than $1 million (£667,000) of the illegal substance and a souvenir Hazmat suit signed by Breaking Bad stars during a raid on his headquarters. The drama series, which ended last year (Sep13), followed the fortunes of Bryan Cranston's cancer-stricken former high school teacher who becomes a drug kingpin.
