LAKE CHARLES, La. (KPLC) - A Jennings man was arrested on Friday after deputies responded to a call of two people passed out in a running car in the parking lot.
Deputies were called to the Country Mile store on Hwy 102 around 7 p.m. on Friday. When deputies approached the vehicle, they observed a small bag of marijuana sitting in the cup holder of the vehicle between the two occupants, according to the Jeff Davis Parish Sheriff’s Office.

Jester was booked into the parish jail and is facing drug charges.
