According to the booking report, an officer stopped Giordano, 50, for an expired tag on his Ford F-150 pickup truck, for which Giordano had no insurance.

According to the report, the officer conducted a search of the truck and located a baggy of a “dirty crystalline substance” in the driver’s seat. After a field test, the substance was found “presumptive positive for meth.”

Another baggy of a “white crystalline substance” was found in the driver’s side door panel and a “large rock of crystalline substance” was found in the driver’s door handle.

Giordano was booked into the Tulsa County Jail and released later that morning after posting $2,500 bond. He is scheduled to appear in court Aug. 28.

In 2008, Giordano entered guilty pleas for driving under the influence and leaving the scene of an accident. He was handed one-year suspended sentences for both counts.
