A hospital representative, Billy Sanford, told Wood an employee had found a burned marijuana cigarette in the chair where patient Christopher Arless, 34, had been sitting.

 Arless was in the hospital because of a leg injury.

  When Wood first saw Arless out in the hospital parking area with Sanford, the  Ada man told him he had been taking Lortabs. “What is this all about,” Arless asked the officer rhetorically. “Is it about the roach?”

Wood had Arless walk to the back of the patrol car, taking the man’s drink as he passed by him.
