William Billy Bretherton, The Exterminators

A and E

What a buzz bug kill.

E! News confirms that William "Billy" Bretherton, star of the A&E reality TV show Billy the Exterminator, was arrested in Louisiana for drug possession after police issued a warrant last week for Bretherton and his wife.

What was he holding (other than a hand-pump sprayer)?

Bossier City spokesman Mark Natale says authorities found items that tested positive for synthetic marijuana in Bretherton's hotel room, along with a device commonly used to smoke narcotics. Natale said police were called on April 28 to a Bossier City hotel following a 911 hang-up call from the room.

The reality show star and his wife surrendered to cops on Friday and were released later that day after posting a $6,000 bond each.

Show reps were not immediately available for comment.
