This Guy Drove Himself To The Hospital Covered In The Poison Made Famous By 'Breaking Bad'

William Christopher Gibbs, a Georgia man who drove himself to a hospital saying he had been exposed to ricin, has since been arrested. Gibbs, 27, drove himself to a hospital in Morganton, Georgia last week claiming that he had ricin on his hands, according to Fannin County Sheriff Dane Kirby. The FBI says his car tested positive for the deadly toxin.

Gibbs has been charged with reckless conduct and probation violation charges. Although it was found in his car, it has not been reported where exactly the ricin came from.

On Friday about 100 law enforcement officers in HAZMAT suits swarmed the Morganton neighborhood. U.S. Attorney John Horn said the 4th Weapons of Mass Destruction Civil Support Team of the Army National Guard and the Cherokee County Fire Department were in Fannin County to make sure everything was safe.

‘All of the sudden a whole host of law enforcement vehicles showed up in our parking lot, somewhere between 30 to 40 vehicles. And around 100 law enforcement individuals,’ said Morganton Mayor Mike England.

Prosecutors say the FBI has ‘identified no evidence that any poisonous or toxic substances have been dispersed or that the public is at risk’ in the case.

Ricin is found naturally in castor beans, but when refined Walter White-style, can kill a fully-grown adult with the amount equal to just a few grains of sand.
