BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) _ A Mandan man sentenced in October for conspiring to sell synthetic marijuana has been charged with another drug crime.
William Nickel has been charged with ingesting a controlled substance. A criminal complaint says Nickel tested positive for using methamphetamine.
Nickel is a co-owner of Big Willies, a smoke shop in Mandan. He was convicted and sentenced to one year in prison in October for conspiring to sell synthetic marijuana. However, his prison sentence was put on hold until the North Dakota Supreme Court hears his appeal.
Part of the terms of his probation was that he not use any drugs.
