The son of U.S. Rep. Steve Womack, R-Ark., was arrested for possession of methamphetamine on Wednesday, according to reports.
The suspected nine grams of meth was found inside a zippered eyeglass case that James Womack, 34, allegedly tried to hide by sitting on it when officers arrived as part of a probation home visit connected to a past felony charge, FOX 16 Little Rock reported.
Police also allegedly found several syringes and a metal spoon inside the case.
Substances found inside a glass vial and a baggie in the case both tested positive for meth, an affidavit said.
Womack was charged with felony possession of controlled substance-methamphetamine and felony possession of drug paraphernalia.
He was booked into the Benton County Jail on a $20,000 bond, FOX 16 reported. He remained in jail on Thursday.
In 2019, Womack was sentenced to nine years in prison after pleading guilty to gun and drug charges but was given early release due to the coronavirus pandemic.
He has had legal trouble and several run-ins with police in the past.
