[January 30, 2009]  HIGHLAND HILLS, Ohio (AP) -- A public employee in a Cleveland suburb was arrested on a marijuana possession charge and, hours later, on charges of smoking pot while driving a village truck.

InsuranceDonald Brown, 34, of Highland Hills was charged Tuesday with driving under the influence when he was arrested the second time. Earlier, he was held on a possession charge when officers smelled marijuana outside his apartment.

According to the police report, Brown told officers he was fine to drive because he had "only smoked a roach" -- the remnant of a marijuana cigarette. But officers said Brown failed a field sobriety test.

A Highland Hills spokesman said any disciplinary action must await the outcome in court.

Brown's attorney, Beverly Briggs, said Thursday she had just gotten the case and couldn't comment.
