(COLUMBUS) - A driver who allegedly flipped a cigarette out the window right in front of a Bartholomew County Sheriff's deputy early Saturday morning on Interstate 65 was arrested on drug charges.

Deputy Matt Bush was patrolling on Interstate 65 near the Columbus exit at about 3 a.m. Saturday, when he noticed that the car in front of him didn't have a working license plate light and the driver threw a lit cigarette out the window.

After stopping the vehicle, Bush reported that he smelled a strong scent of marijuana inside the car.

A search of the driver, 20-year-old Douglas Skaryd of Bannister, Mich., revealed 370 grams of marijuana, a scale and plastic baggies.

Skaryd was arrested on a preliminary charge of dealing marijuana.
