PORT ORCHARD, Wash. — A Washington state man who went to court to face a methamphetamine charge is in more trouble after authorities say he showed up with a bag of meth in his pants.

The 33-year-old Bremerton man had to be booked and released from the Kitsap County Jail before Tuesday's court appearance in Port Orchard. That's standard procedure.

The Kitsap Sun reports that a guard found a bag of meth in the man's pocket during a pat-down at the jail. Now he's facing a new felony drug possession charge.
