Beaufort, NC-AP - April 12, 2006 - A man and woman accused of using their car as a rolling methamphetamine lab are being held on drug charges.

Matthew Livingston Brown and Bridget Slaughter, who is eight months pregnant, are being held on $500,000 bond each.

The car remained in a store parking lot, and it was cordoned off while hazardous waste crews cleaned it of chemicals and drugs.

A police officer who stopped the car for a traffic violation Monday night smelled chemicals and noticed a large bucket on the floorboard in front of the male passenger. The officer says the bucket appeared to contain methamphetamine in the making, and he says the car contained everything needed to make the highly addictive drug.

Brown and Slaughter face a number of charges, including manufacturing methamphetamine, possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver methamphetamine and possession of methamphetamine. Slaughter also faces several motor vehicle violations.

One of my buddy's recently got into some trouble at a bar and the short story is he was arrested on assault charges which are ridiculous we were there and watched as a random guy came up to him punched him in the face and began repeatedly beating him. He stood up to defend himself and in the crossfire the wasted dude fell and banged his head on the kerb. The cops show up and don't want to hear us and arrest him.
It all got cleared up in the end but had that have gone to court and my friend had to have paid court bonds could he have claimed them back or even sued the police force for wrongful arrest? Also where would be the best place for getting bonded?
