JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A man is on thin ice for having ice.

On Tuesday, a Jonesboro police officer noticed a driver swerving from lane to lane on Nettleton Avenue and pulled him over.

The driver, Michael Nichols, told the officer that his license was suspended, but he had a permit to drive to and from work that he did not have with him.

According the report, the officer placed Nichols in custody for driving on a suspended license.  The officer searched Nichols' vehicle and found a clear bag containing what looked to be crystal meth.

Nichols was taken to the Craighead County Detention Center where he was charged with possession of a controlled substance and driving on a suspended license.
