DOVER, Del.- Capitol Police say a Smyrna man is charged with drug possession after he brought marijuana into the Kent County Courthouse.

When 31-year-old Nathaniel Barksdale walked into the courthouse on Thursday, he was asked to empty his pockets during the security screening. Police say that while doing so, a plastic bag with suspected marijuana fell out of his pocket.  

Police say that while officers were taking Barksdale into custody, his girlfriend, 28-year-old Rachel M. Harris of Dover, began using profanity toward the officers.  Harris was then arrested for disorderly conduct.  

Both Barksdale and Harris were released on criminal summons with a court date pending.
