Officers arrested Fisher, on Friday after learning about a suspicious backpack drop.
Agents with the West Alabama Narcotics Task Force were informed that suspect Christopher Rushing had dropped off a backpack containing meth lab components at a Tuscaloosa business, said Lt. Teena Richardson, Tuscaloosa police spokeswoman.
The agents conducted surveillance and said they saw Fisher enter the business and later leave with the backpack. They followed him to his office on Greensboro Avenue, Richardson said.
Rushing later arrived at Fisher’s office and was observed leaving with the backpack, Richardson said. Agents took both men into custody and obtained consent to search Rushing’s vehicle, where they said they found a one-pot meth lab and 369 grams of oil.
According to the police, more arrests are expected in the bust as the investigation continues.
Fisher, 48, describes himself as “very active in the Tuscaloosa community” on his attorney profile, as a deacon at the Calvary Baptist Church, a guest lecturer at the University of Alabama, and the host of the “John Fisher Radio Show,” which he describes his as “the absolute unfiltered truth about all things American” and “easily understood with no political correctness.”
Fisher has publicly spoken out against illegal drug use in the past on his radio show’s page.

In one post defending gun owners, he called himself a “law abiding citizen” and criticized the government for not spending more resources on taking drugs off the streets.
“Illegal drug use is a MUCH more expensive drain on society in terms of healthcare and work issues,” he wrote in his rant
In 2013, he also called out Alabama’s then-secretary of law enforcement Spencer Collier after his son Christopher Collier was arrested for selling Oxycodone pills.
Since his arrest, Fisher’s Facebook page for his show has been blasted with comments against drug dealers.
