BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – Capital area authorities say a 25-year-old driver was pulled over for a minor traffic concern in a Wednesday, November 2 incident that ended with his arrest.

According to deputies with the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office (EBRSO), it was around 8:27 p.m. when they pulled Darrell Early over near the 6100 block of Florida Boulevard for driving with his high beams on.

EBRSO says when a deputy approached the vehicle, it smelled like marijuana and that marijuana gleanings appeared to have spilled on Early’s shirt.

In their official report on the incident, deputies accuse Early of hiding marijuana in his sock and say that upon searching the vehicle he was driving, they found four bags of suspected marijuana, a digital scale, a gun, ammo, and $700 in cash.

According to EBRSO, Early was booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on a slew of charges that include but are not limited to the illegal carrying of weapons, possession of a firearm or the carrying of concealed weapons by a person convicted of certain felonies, as well drug possession and distribution/manufacturing charges.
