Jeremy Mayfield's fall from grace is now nearly complete.
Mayfield was released on $3,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday morning. He was suspended indefinitely from NASCAR after failing a random drug test in May of 2009, but has steadfastly maintained his innocence, claiming his test results were falsely skewed by his use of Adderal prescribed for Attention Deficit Disorder and an over-the-counter allergy medication Claritin D and . accusing NASCAR of altering the results of his drug test, failure to follow proper drug screening protocol.
Red Bull Racing President Jay Frye said today that he has no knowledge of the investigation, beyond what has been reported. “We had some stuff stolen a few months back; some electronics and other items," he said. "We provided a list of the stolen items to law enforcement at the time, and we have spoken with them periodically on the status of the case. At this point, we’re waiting to hear whether any of the items that were recovered (at Mayfield’s residence) belonged to us. At this moment, I have no idea.”
