An officer enforcing seat belt laws as part of the annual "Click It or Ticket" campaign saw a vehicle drive through a stop sign Tuesday evening. When the driver stopped and rolled down the window, police say, the officer was "covered in a plume of smoke."
Sgt. John Delaney said the officer asked: "Are you smoking marijuana while operating this motor vehicle?"
The driver allegedly responded: "Why, yes, I am, officer."
The 30-year-old driver was scheduled for arraignment Wednesday on charges of operating under the influence of drugs, failure to obey a stop sign, and failure to wear a seat belt.
