UNIONTOWN, PA State police say Ronald Washington called Menallen Elementary
School in Uniontown on Thursday morning to ask if his son had
arrived at school. Police say Washington told school officials he
needed to fetch something from the boy's backpack, prompting school
officials to search it.
Police say school officials called to say they had found pot in
the bag. Troopers were waiting to arrest Washington when he arrived
shortly before 9 a.m.
Online court records don't list an attorney for the 33-year-old
Washington. He was unable to post $100,000 and jailed.
