Where a defendant in a drug-trafficking case objected to testimony from a deputy about guns other than the ones mentioned in the indictment, the district court did not abuse its discretion in finding the evidence probative of the charged drug offense and the testimony was not unfairly prejudicial, and the judgment is affirmed because the defendant did not show that comments made by four potential jurors tainted the impartiality of the jury.
Judgment is affirmed.
