A U.S. Marine veteran who made international headlines when he drove guns and ammunition into Mexico from San Diego was arrested on a minor drug charge in Indiana on Thursday.
Andrew Tahmooressi, 27, was booked into a Dearborn County jail on a charge of possessing less than 30 grams of marijuana, authorities said.
A local radio station, Eagle Country 99.3 FM, reported that a court affidavit said Tahmooressi appeared disoriented at a fairground when police investigated his truck alarm sounding. Officers allege they found a small amount of marijuana in his truck.
The radio station said Tahmooressi pleaded guilty in a court appearance Thursday and was sentenced to one month in jail.
At the time of his arrest, the Florida resident had started treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder in San Diego. The Marine reservist served two tours of duty in Afghanistan and received an honorable discharge in 2012.
