An Oklahoma City man was arrested for an outstanding warrant after police responded to a disturbance call at a home on the northwest side of the metro. But it's what the man tried to take with him to jail that's landed him in even hotter water.

OKC Police arrested 44-year-old Roger Carter after responding to a disturbance in the 1100 block of N. Kentucky Ave., near NW 10th St. and N. Penn. Ave.

During a custodial search at the jail, officers located two baggies containing methamphetamine; one concealed in Carter's glove and another in his pants pocket. In all, 131 grams of meth was recovered.

Carter was booked into jail and charged with Possession of a Controlled Dangerous Substance with Intent to Distribute. Police did not say for what his outstanding warrant was issued. His bond was set at $5,000.
