Darrin Dewayne Fletcher

A Bryan man was charged with a felony Tuesday after authorities said he had packaged soap and was attempting to sell it as crack cocaine.

According to police, around 5:30 a.m., an officer spoke with two men on West 17th Street. One man, identified as Darrin Dewayne Fletcher, 42, attempted to leave, and was brought to the ground by an officer, police said. The two were arrested on existing warrants.

As Fletcher was being loaded into the patrol car, an officer noted a small plastic bag containing what appeared to be narcotics packaged for sale. While being booked, Fletcher told police the substance was soap and that he had cut it up to sell in order to have money for food. Authorities tested the substance, and it did not yield a positive result for narcotics.

He is charged with unlawful manufacture of a simulated narcotic, a state jail felony punishable by up to two years in a state jail, and evading arrest on foot, a Class A misdemeanor. He is being held in the Brazos County Jail on $5,000 bond.

That has got to be the most ironic tattoo to situation I have ever seen, and crackheads definitely need soap.[lol]
