JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — A man who won New Jersey’s lottery twice has been arrested on drug charges.

Police in Jersey City stopped James Callahan for a traffic violation last weekend. They allegedly seized nearly 350 prescription drug pills and at least two weapons including an assault firearm.

I guess that this case shows that you can be both a winner & a loser at the same time. At least his winnings will afford him some small comfort at the slammer's PX.

One symptom of bipolar mania is going off the deep end when you suddenly have more $$$ than you can use.

I've heard winning the lottery does not make your problems go away. It just makes them bigger.
