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 Lebanon, stood before General Sessions Judge Haywood Barry on a charge of simple possession Monday.

WSMV reports Boston was speaking about marijuana legalization when he pulled out what looked to be a marijuana cigarette.

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.
