According to the Daily News, the Florida resident is being held on a $12,500 bond. Two other men; James Lee Allen, 35, and Benjamin Scott Smith, 33 were arrested soon after him.

“It’s still an active investigation,” Lee County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Tiffany Wood told Naples News about specific details, such as what kind of drugs were involved. “The community is safe.”

When Carroll when the contest back in September, he called the show about a high school teach turned meth dealer “highly addicting, just like the meth they make.”
