Don't take these things to court

FORT PIERCE, Fla. (AP) - September 30, 2009

Oh, and add pot to the list of things to leave at home.

Authorities in St. Lucie County, Fla., report a young woman was stopped at a courthouse security check.

The sheriff's office says a private security officer found a number of suspicious items during the scan.

When the security officer emptied the purse, authorities say he found a baggie of suspected pot.

A field test confirmed it.

Chantel Marissa Johnson was busted and charged with possession.

The 21-year-old was later freed on $500 bail.
