Feb 26 2014 - 2:50pm

A 21-year-old man was arrested in La Grange, IL, on Monday after officials found a meth lab in his house. And of all things, he was wearing a Breaking Bad t-shirt when authorities arrived. Narcotics officers were tipped off Daniel Kowalski might be cooking meth [1], and when they entered his house, they found a full lab. During his arrest, Kowalski was sporting a Los Pollos Hermanos tee — a nod to the fictional fast-food joint from the show. Currently on electronic monitoring, he'd previously been arrested in July 2013, when authorities found a suspected lab.

This isn't the first time a Breaking Bad fan has been linked to a drug arrest. In January, a Breaking Bad contest winner faced federal charges [2] linked to a large-scale synthetic marijuana distribution operation. As for Kowalski, he was charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance, possession of meth manufacturing materials, and possession of materials needed to produce meth.

For those who haven't watched Breaking Bad, Los Pollos Hermanos is a fictional chicken joint owned by a major meth distributor.

In Kowalski's house, authorities found an inactive meth lab setup.
