Longtime Maryland civil rights leader Carl Snowden has been charged with marijuana possession.
The Associated Press reports Snowden was arrested after a vehicle he was riding in was pulled over late last week for a broken tail light.
Snowden is the director of the Maryland Attorney General's Office of Civil Rights, but he said recently that he plans to take a sabbatical from that position to pursue a lawsuit against Anne Arundel County Executive John Leopold, according to Snowden's attorney, Cary Hansel.
Hansel also said further investigation on his client's arrest will reveal the matter is a "nonissue." Hansel adds there was another person in that vehicle, and the marijuana seized was only a "trace amount," according to AP.
