A Florida attorney was arrested after the sheriff's office said he tried to smuggle fake legal papers soaked in cocaine into a local jail.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said defense attorney David Casals' arrest came after “an extensive investigation, testing, interviews and search warrants.”

He turned himself in and was released on $58,000 bond, the Palm Beach Post reported.
