Local law enforcement stopped Carlton early Tuesday on the strip when he walked into an intersection while the "do not cross" signal was flashing. They found methamphetamine on him, but according to the police report, he'd meant to buy cocaine and told police, "Oh damn. I was trying to buy that powder, not meth."
