James Brown, Millionaire, Did So Much Cocaine His Nose Collapsed

Cocaine is a hell of a drug, and this guy nose it.

A millionaire with a taste for expensive cars and exorbitant amounts of cocaine was arrested when police found a huge drug stash in his Bentley convertible, Wales Online reports.

James Brown (yep), 45, of southwest Wales, reportedly really likes cocaine. He did so much cocaine on a daily basis that his nose has deformed and collapsed, the news site reported.

Last week, he was sentenced to five years in jail after cops found $277,000 worth of cocaine stowed away in his car's air vents and folding roof mechanism. At the time of his arrest, he was staying in a luxury hotel where investigators also found a collection of illegal guns and more cocaine, the Daily Mail reported.

In court last week, a judge heard how Brown used legitimate money to fund his cocaine problem. But the drug led to paranoia -- and a deteriorated nose -- so he bought the haul of weapons to defend himself. The guns included a 9mm semi-automatic Walther PP1 pistol, which is similar to the gun used by James Bond, according to the Herald Sun.

Brown admitted to everything, prosecutors said.
