CATAWBA, N.C. (AP) - Former NASCAR driver Jeremy Mayfield has been charged with possession of methamphetamine.
The 42-year-old former Sprint Cup driver was arrested Tuesday night at his home in the western North Carolina town of Catawba, according to the Catawba County Sheriff's Office. Mayfield posted $3,000 bond and was scheduled to appear in court Wednesday.
Authorities also say they found $100,000 worth of stolen goods at Mayfield's home. The Lincoln County Sheriff's Office says detectives found truck parts, welding accessories and other items belonging to two businesses in that county.
The phone at Mayfield's home rang unanswered Wednesday.
Mayfield was suspended from NASCAR in 2009 for failing a random drug test. Mayfield denied he was using an illegal drug, but NASCAR said he tested positive for methamphetamines.
