(Pinckney-AP, May 18, 2003, 10:35 p.m.) An Ingham County man faces at least three felony charges after Livingston County police pulled him over on suspicion of drunk driving, only to find that his erratic driving was a result of trying to simultaneously manufacture methamphetamine.
Chad Carr, 25, of Stockbridge is charged with operation of a methamphetamine lab with possession of a firearm, a felony carrying a sentence of up to 25 years.
Carr is also charged with possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver and manufacturing the drug, The Ann Arbor News reported in a Saturday story.
Carr was pulled over Thursday morning by Pinckney Police Chief Denis Aseltine, who said Carr's vehicle appeared to have fresh front-end damage.
Aseltine found an all-terrain vehicle in the bed of the truck that had been reported stolen Wednesday. A search of the truck revealed the components of a methamphetamine lab.
U.S. Drug Enforcement Agents and DEA-trained police from Hamburg Township secured the components. Aseltine said agents told him Carr had been trying to complete one stage of the drug's production when he was pulled over.
Carr is being held on $100,000 bond. A preliminary examination is scheduled for Wednesday.
