I'm just spitballing here, but I bet if you had a bunch of meth heads play against one another in a softball game with a softball made of methamphetamine, that game would end very quickly.

Like before the first half inning ends when said meth heads break open the ball. Breaking bad, indeed.

It's a theory U.S. Border Patrol agents at the San Clemente checkpoint can test now that they've confiscated a softball-size bundle of meth.

It happened Tuesday when a 41-year-old Mexican national behind the wheel of a 2002 Dodge Durango was sent to a secondary screening area at the checkpoint alongside the northbound lanes of the 5 freeway, where a canine officer took particular interest in a briefcase on the rear seat.

The 1.036-pound ball of meth found inside was later estimated to be worth $20,720.

The unidentified driver was placed under arrest.

Better call Saul!

Actually they won't have any energy to go out and commit crimes.

It was only a one-pound ball, probably a days worth is all...

I don't know why this checkpoint even exists.  Even on the rare occasions they are even manning it, they have one officer waving cars north - only looking to see if they are hispanic looking.  They need to start inspecting every 20th car or something - in addition to the normal immigration screening.  They would find SO much.   Also - I'm told the smugglers to LA take the Amtrak anyway.
