Police arrested a man during a traffic stop after the man admitted he had marijuana in his sock.
Police arrested a man for driving on a suspended license and possession of marijuana during a traffic stop at about 10:30 p.m. Sunday On West Road near Grange Road.
Police said they saw a black vehicle sitting at a green light and pulled the car over at a McDonald’s on West Road.
The 20-year-old driver gave police his Michigan Identification Card and police soon realized his driver’s license was suspended for two violations out of Taylor.
Police took the man into custody by handcuffing him and placing him into the back of a patrol car.
As the arresting officer got into his patrol car he said he could smell a strong odor of marijuana coming from the backseat of the car.
The officer asked the man where the marijuana was and he denied having any. After further questioning the man admitted to having marijuana in his left sock and he allowed the officer to remove it.
The officer field-tested the contents of the bag he removed from the man’s sock, which tested positive for marijuana.
The man was issued citations for driving while license is suspended and violation of the controlled substance act.
The vehicle the man was driving at the time of the arrest was allowed to be driven home by the registered owner. The vehicle was not reported stolen.
