If the meth doesn't wreck his teeth, the rock-eating certainly will.

Michael Sutton, 36, was arrested last week after some high school students found him near their school, eating rocks and babbling on about meth, the Des Moines Register reported.

Students from Lincoln High School in Des Moines said Sutton had two young boys with him at 1:30 p.m. on Dec. 2, rocks crunching between his teeth. The students told a school official that they asked Sutton why he was eating rocks, and he responded, "I lost my meth."

At about 2 p.m., police found Sutton standing in the road, still eating rocks. According to a police report, an officer asked if Sutton thought it was odd to eat rocks, and he replied, "Well, they are small rocks."

He then grabbed the two boys, ages 4 and 5, into his car and started to drive away, but cops immediately pulled him over again because his brake lights weren't working.

After they pulled him over, they found a meth pipe in his pocket and he admitted to smoking meth, the report states.

Sutton was charged with child endangerment, failing to secure a child, possession of drug paraphernalia, and various traffic violations. The children were taken to their mother, Sutton's girlfriend.
