New cell phone law leads to drug arrest
New Hampshire's new law against using cell phones while driving lead to a drug arrest on Wednesday.
Alex Ramos of Chelsea, Massachusetts was driving his black Honda CRV on South Broadway in Salem while talking on his cell phone when an officer pulled him over just before 11 p.m.
The officer had planned to remind Ramos of the new law against cell phone use, but he noticed a strong smell of marijuana as soon as he got near the car.
Ramos handed the officer a bag of marijuana and a glass pipe. He was arrested for having the marijuana, and was issued a warning about the hands-free law.
Ramos was released, and has a court date scheduled for August 10.
