Hellbender Meadery owners indicted on drug charges

I know the guy who was going to be the brewer there. This totally sucks for him. I remember asking him how these people got so much money, and he said they got it selling fake drugs. At the time, I wondered how that was legal. Turns out, it wasn't.

Most mugshots aren't very flattering. I only met the younger guy who was arrested. He looked a lot less scary in person than in that photo.

Edit: These mugshots are pretty sweet: http://twistedsifter.com/2011/05/vintage-mugshots-from-1920s-black-white/
