LEBANON, Tenn. (AP) — This story brings new meaning to the term “joint custody.” In this case, a Tennessee man was taken into custody for lighting a joint in court. Spencer Alan Boston is charged with disorderly conduct and simple possession for his actions during a court appearance Monday in the town of Lebanon. Boston was in court on a simple drug possession charge. When it was time for him to discuss his sentence, he pulled out a joint — and fired it up. Spectators chuckled, but it was no laughing matter to the court. Boston was hauled off into custody, leaving behind the telltale smell of what led to his arrest.
