LEBANON, Tenn. — A man in court for allegedly possessing drugs faces new charges after he started smoking marijuana in front of a judge, according to WSMV.
Spencer Alan Boston, 20, of Levanon, stood before General Sessions Judge Haywood Barry on a charge of simple possession Monday.

Boston reportedly put the cigarette in his mouth and lit it with a match.
The courtroom began to laugh, and Boston was arrested.
He is charged with disorderly conduct, simple possession of a schedule VI drug and contempt, according to Wilson County Sheriff’s Office records.
