CHAMBERLAIN - A Chamberlain High School student's father was arrested for drug possession after the child attended school under the influence of marijuana.

A high school teacher notified police of a student who was "acting very weird" with bloodshot and glassy eyes on Feb. 15, according to court documents.

The student admitted to police and administration that she had smoked marijuana with her dad before school that day. Police obtained a search warrant and found various pieces of drug paraphernalia and pipes with methamphetamine in them.

The 48-year-old man was arrested for possession of a controlled substance, a Class 5 felony, and possession of drug paraphernalia, a misdemeanor.

Class 5 felonies are punishable upon conviction by up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
