Anytime there is a congregation of people in any public area, they may attract the attention of police. When that group of people consists of teenagers, they may be more apt to attract attention and find themselves being questioned by law enforcement authorities. An encounter with police in South Carolina recently led to drug charges for one teenager who was with a group of teens out on the street.
The police were called to a street corner because of allegations that there was a noisy group of teenagers there. When a police officer walked toward one of the teens, the teenager turned and then allegedly dropped a bag of marijuana onto the ground. The authorities also say that the teenager in question had a glass pipe for smoking marijuana in one pocket of his shorts.
