On Jan. 3, a Texas man was arrested after police found marijuana and other drugs in his car during a traffic stop. The man tried to stop officers from approaching his vehicle by getting out and telling them he was a youth baseball coach.
According to media reports, the defendant was pulled over at approximately 6 p.m. near the intersection of East Texas Avenue and North Pearl Street for failing to have his headlights on. When the officer started walking toward the vehicle, he hopped out and said he was a Mart Youth Baseball and Softball League coach. However, the officer said he smelled marijuana and asked where it was coming from.
