LA CROSSE, Wis. (AP) - A 57-year-old La Crosse man has been arrested on charges of possessing blue-tinted methamphetamine worth thousands of dollars.

The La Crosse Tribune (https://bit.ly/1s06NuL ) reports Steven McCurdy is facing charges of possession with intent to deliver meth, escape, resisting officers, criminal damage to property and possession of drug paraphernalia. Police say they seized 98 grams of meth from McCurdy on Saturday.

Police reports say McCurdy damaged the squad car divider, escaped his handcuffs and fought with officers during his arrest.

It wasn’t immediately known if he has an attorney.

La Crosse police first discovered blue meth in late December. Investigators say they believe the manufacturer of the drug is dying it blue to trademark the product in a nod to the popular TV series “Breaking Bad.”
