ALLIANCE, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio man who got a police officer's help to find a bit of marijuana lost in his yard has been charged with misdemeanor drug abuse.
The patrolman's body camera video shows an intoxicated man admitting he lost the drug. The Alliance officer says he doesn't want children to find it and then locates it in the grass.
The man asks if he'd throw it back on the ground. The officer refuses.
Police say the officer had found the man stumbling along the road and tried to get him home safely.
Some commenters suggested the man has an alcohol problem and criticized Alliance police for sharing the video on Facebook.
Capt. James Hilles tells the Akron Beacon Journal it's just a light-hearted example of silly things people say to officers.
