LUFKIN, Texas (AP) — An East Texas man already on probation is jailed after his probation officer discovered he had a shampoo bottle filled with urine taped to his genitals in an attempt to falsify a drug screening test.

According to The Lufkin Daily News (http://bit.ly/1Pcywhs ), police reports indicate the probation officer for 20-year-old Travion Williams became suspicious when the Lufkin man this week didn't want the officer watching him provide urine for the test.

The officer said that's when he noticed the bottle taped to Williams.

Williams told police he was trying to fake the drug screen. He was taken to jail and the bottle and its contents held as evidence.
