Since 2008, it's been difficult to mention real-life meth dealers without including the phrase "just like in Breaking Bad." Now an Illinois man has taken the trend to its logical conclusion.

Daniel Kowalski, 21, was arrested for allegedly cooking meth while wearing a T-shirt bearing the logo of Los Pollos Hermanos, the fictional fried chicken restaurant/meth lab from the AMC drama, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Police in Cook County – just as in Breaking Bad, there are multileveled references in this story – arrested Kowalski Monday after a search of his home yielded evidence of a homemade meth lab, as well as instructions for cooking meth that were more detailed than those found in Breaking Bad.

Kowalski was charged with four meth-related felonies and ordered to appear in court Wednesday for a bond hearing. He had been under home confinement after a previous meth arrest in July 2013, just weeks before Breaking Bad wrapped up its fifth and final season.
