Austin Kyle Smith, 21 of Lindale, was arrested this week after police said he swallowed marijuana during a traffic stop in order to hide it from officers.

Police said that Smith was originally pulled over for a broken taillight when they observed a green leafy substance on his tongue.

Authorities added that they also smelled alcohol on his breath before locating a Bud Light and an empty bottle of Crown Royal inside the vehicle.

Smith is charged with tampering with evidence, open container violation, DUI, possession of marijuana, improper tail lights and failure to maintain lane.
