HARRINGTON, Del. (AP/WBOC) - Harrington police say they arrested a drunk driver who ate marijuana during a traffic stop.

Police said an officer stopped 40-year-old Vernon Smith on West Center Street late Friday. Lt. Earl Brode said the officer noticed the odor of alcohol coming from the Dover resident's vehicle and saw a plastic bag of marijuana on the console.

Brode said the officer went back to his car to do a computer check on Smith's license. Brode said when the officer returned to Smith's vehicle he saw the plastic bag missing and Smith eating the marijuana. Brode said Smith admitted taking the drug.

Smith was released after posting $1,850 secured bail. He did not appear to have a listed telephone number.
