An Orange County police officer spotted Josh in the passenger seat of a car and recognized him from a previous arrest, according to TMZ.
The deputy reportedly knew Josh was on parole for an assault, which meant the cop could conduct a random search.
He allegedly found fentanyl and meth on Josh’s lap during the search.
Josh, who reportedly tried to brush the drugs onto the floor of the car, was arrested on the spot and taken to jail.
He is accused of felony possession and the sale of fentanyl and misdemeanor methamphetamine possession.
He was charged with selling fentanyl because of the amount that cops found on him, according to the outlet.
The arrest is just the latest in a string of legal troubles for Josh.
