Court records say a Mississippi man who was released early from prison after providing information about a drug kingpin has been charged with selling large amounts of cocaine and marijuana to police informants.

Federal court records say Dmtrice "Mickey" Booth of Bassfield was given an eight-year sentence on drug charges in 2004, but it was cut almost in half after he provided information on two suspected drug dealers, including David Warner.

Authorities have said Warner was one of the biggest drug dealers ever in Mississippi. He was on the U.S. Marshals Service's 15 Most Wanted list before being captured in Mexico in 2005.

A criminal complaint filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Hattiesburg says Booth sold large quantities of drugs to informants in 2011.

    Yea, it's not a good idea to throw an informant's name out there like that when you are going to put him in general population. That kind of thing needs to be given careful consideration. It may be cruel and unusual to put him in the same jail with people he probably wore a wire to get busted years back,but the dude did mess up really bad after his release. Here's hoping he wears another one.
