Don Zumwalt says he told them they could spend the next three days in juvenile detention -- or they could hand over the marijuana that had been detected on all five buses.
The kids gave up the pot.
And that was a better choice for all concerned. Zumwalt says if he'd arrested them all and confiscated the buses, it would have been a logistical nightmare. His juvenile detention facility only has 20 beds.
He says he gave them a "fatherly talk about skiing sober" before sending them on their way -- minus the pot, pipes, bongs and rolling papers that were turned over.
