Dad accused of hiding marijuana under baby during traffic stop

CANADIAN COUNTY, OK -- A father is accused of hiding half a pound of marijuana under his baby son, reports KOCO-TV in Oklahoma City.

Andrew Charles Wyatt Jr. was pulled over for speeding on Interstate 40 Tuesday. Senior Agent Mike Arnold of the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics smelled pot during the traffic stop. He searched the car and found the marijuana hidden in a car seat under a five-month-old boy. Agent Arnold says years of experience have taught him to check everywhere for drugs.

"Whenever you pull over a car that has children in it, you just hope there's nothing in that car. And then when you do come across it you go through a roller-coaster of emotions," Arnold says.

Wyatt was arrested. The baby's mother was also in the car. She took the child. Wyatt is from Arizona.
