An Oklahoma City man went to jail hungry Sunday evening.

Damon Hopkins, 29, was arrested Sunday after police said they smelled burnt marijuana coming from his car in a fast-food drive-thru.

About 6:30 p.m. Sunday, two police cars were in the drive-thru line at Raising Cane’s, 2036 NW 23, with one car between them.

While waiting in line, one of the officers said he could smell burnt marijuana coming from Hopkins’ car when he rolled down his window to order, according to a police report. The officers also noticed a 3-year-old in the backseat.

After Hopkins left the drive-thru, officers pulled him over and discovered about 5 grams of marijuana in the car.

Hopkins was arrested and charged on complaints of possession of marijuana in the presence of a child and driving without a license. The child was released to its mother after the arrest.
