Odd El Paso Drug Bust

A man in El Paso pulled over after a mattress fell off the top of his SUV and in front of a sheriff's department vehicle has been arrested after deputies found he was carrying suspected illegal drugs.

Deputies became suspicious when 19-year-old Arturo Dominguez was so nervous talking to them he was shaking.

Police tell the El Paso Times deputies from a drug interdiction unit were behind Dominguez when the mattress flew off and became a traffic hazard. They pulled him over.

Dominguez was held Friday on $7,500 bond on a charge of suspicion of possession of a controlled substance.
