What could possibly draw attention to 19-year-old Joseph Cornelius? Blends in, right? Just the look you go for if your trade is hawking drugs. Smart. Inconspicuous.

Shockingly, Cornelius was sniffed out by the cops, but not because he's got the Warped Tour vampire look going on.

According to the Medina Gazette, Cornelius went to make a sell this week, forking over some pot and LSD. His customer, however, was a task force agent. Damn. What horrible luck. He had such a bright future — next week he was going to dye his hair purple.

A grab-bag of law enforcement agencies assisted in locking him up after the unfortunate meet-up with Johnny Law. He's in jail on $50,000 bond on one count of trafficking drugs; more charges could be forthcoming after the lab gets done testing the LSD. Alas, the purple hair will have to wait.
