Ozark Couple Arrested After 5-Year Old Brings Marijuana to School

OZARK , Ala. (AP) - It wasn't the show and tell teachers had in mind. An Ozark couple was jailed after their 5-year-old child pulled out a bag of marijuana at his school.

Police Chief Tony Spivey said the incident occurred Monday at Thompkins Early Childhood Center. He said 39-year-old Antonio Griffin and 30-year-old Yamisha Gray were arrested. The child was turned over to relatives.

Spivey said it unlikely the youngster brought the marijuana with the intent to sell.
