A Greene County man who was arrested after deputies say he was smoking pot behind the wheel, with a baby inside the car was due in court Friday, but the case was continued.

31-year-old Jason Morelock of Hookerton was arrested in October during a driver checkpoint in Jones County.

Deputies say there was a baby in the backseat of the car and he was "reeking" of marijuana which prompted a search of the vehicle. The search revealed drug paraphernalia, eight guns and $500.

His case was continued until March 30.
