Don't let Nate Newton borrow your car. Especially when he says he has to "run an errand." In November of 2001 Newton was pulled over on a Louisiana highway and detained when it was discovered he was carrying 213 pounds of marijuana in his van. While out on bond he was pulled over again, this time with 175 pounds of grass. The two arrests were made within five weeks of one another. While serving a two year prison sentence, Newton estimated that he made roughly $75K per drug deal.
