Man nabbed after pot text to Texas police officer

A message between old friends who hadn't been in touch for a while led to a drug arrest after the recipient of the "So do you smoke weed?" text turned out to be a police officer. Amanda Williams is a reserve officer with the Early Police Department. The Brownwood Bulletin reported Friday that Williams said she received the text message Tuesday asking about getting together to smoke some marijuana that the man had.

Early said she had not spoken to the man in some time and he did not know that she's a law officer.

Williams let police know that she agreed to meet the man at a park.

Early police and Texas troopers were on hand to detain the San Angelo man, who faces a marijuana possession charge.

Early is 120 miles southwest of Fort Worth.
