Millionaire, James Brown, Headed to Prison With a Cocaine-induced Collapsed Nose

Written by DeShawn McQueen on Thursday, 04 October 2012. Posted in Breaking News, Cocaine

Nose Collapsed Because of Cocaine

A Welsh millionaire snorted so much cocaine over the years, or perhaps even decades, that his nose became so distorted that it collapsed.

Yes, you read correctly, James Brown’s [not the king of soul] nose collapsed. And that is not even the worst of it.

When it rains it really does pour. Brown recently learned, last week, that he was sentenced to 5 years in prison due to a drug-related conviction.

Police pulled over the 45 year old Southwest Wales resident and discovered that he had as much as $277,000.00 worth of cocaine in his Bentley convertible.

Yep, it sounds like he really likes cocaine. I wonder if it was all for him!

Although Brown strategically hid the cocaine in his Bentley, officers located cocaine hidden in air vents, as well as the folding roof of the vehicle.

Meanwhile, when authorities arrested the “cocaine addict”, he was residing at a posh hotel.

Police allegedly discovered even more cocaine, not to mention guns, including a semi-automatic Walther PP1 Pistol in his Brown’s hotel suite.

Prosecutors revealed that Brown pled guilty to all the charges, so a long drawn out trial was unnecessary.
