A former Des Moines Police officer is again facing drug charges after a crash this week in Altoona, Iowa.

Brandon Singleton was arrested on November 4 and charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance after police say they found a baggy of methamphetamine in his van. 

Police searched Singleton's van after he allegedly rear-ended a car, Who Radio reports. Police say Singleton admitted to them that he had used meth earlier that day.

Singleton was fired from the Des Moines Police Department after a similar crash in 2012. Back then Singleton hit a parked car while driving his squad car. Methamphetamine was also found in his police vehicle in that crash. 

Singleton was fired shortly after that crash. And later that year he was convicted of domestic abuse charges.
