Yikes! I must admit that this isn't really the James Brown of whom I first thought. Some days feel older than others.

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.

My thanks to Cher for sending me this wacky story, I guess this does prove that some have no idea what to do with money.

Same name Brian, this one seems to have no talent beyond sucking cocaine up his nose.

Consumption that was conspicuous enough to garner the attention of the police. Thanks for humor!

" and this guy nose it." Lol....I don't normally laugh at someone's misery, but I had to make an exception on this story; and it's not even an Onion story. Ya think Romney nose it too?? It might explain his behavior!

I was thinking a different James Brown too. With all the laws on guns in the UK, wonder how he had all those guns....but guess with enough money one can get anything one wants. What a creep.

This guy is an exception to the rule, somehow it just feels okay to laugh at his self-created misery.
