Former Driver Mayfield Reportedly Busted
Former Sprint Cup Series driver Jeremy Mayfield was reportedly arrested Tuesday night in Catawba, N.C. on charges of methamphetamine possession.
According to a report by the Associated press, sheriff department officials had visited Mayfield’s home to investigate charges of stolen property, and during a search turned up 1.5 grams of methamphetamine. The AP story said the search also found items that may or may not have been stolen from the Red Bull Racing Team. Police also reportedly seized an estimated 50 firearms from the property. Mayfield is out of jail on a $3,000 bond.
Mayfield drove for several Cup teams, including Penske Racing and Evernham Motorsports.
He last drove in 2009.
Mayfield was suspended that year for failing a random drug test. He fought the results of the test.No Comment
