Presley Carter, the grandson of Billy Carter, was arrested in Nagales, Arizona not far from the Mexican border while trying to smuggle an undetermined amount (at press time) of cocaine inside a package of peanuts.
"He told us that he had went to Mexico to purchase a rare form of peanut that was related to the Mexican jumping bean and he was planning to take them to his family's farm in Plains, Georgia", stated a member of the state police who had pulled Presley over.
"I don't know why I stopped him but it was like he was a little TOO friendly waving and smiling as he went by. We're actually here looking for illegal immigrants who sometimes come through here."
Officer Dinwitty's partner, Lester Beasley, then took up the story.
"After we pulled him over and looked through the car we found a package. Carter stated that it had a new type of peanut in it and didn't mind opening it up to show us. He said that he has wanted to develop a hybrid peanut back in Plains."
However, according to the two officers, Carter got a little too happy with his pocket knife and also split open a peanut when he split open the box.
"It had white powder in it", stated Beasley. "Carter had carefully split open about three hundred peanuts and filed them with cocaine and glued the shells back together."
Carter was arrested and taken to Tuscon.
When former president Jimmy Carter was told about Presley, he stated that it figures. "He always has had a peanut sized brain!"
