BETHLEHEM, Pa. (AP) - A 22-year-old man faces charges after police encountered him dribbling a basketball along Interstate 78 near Bethlehem.

The Express-Times of Easton reported Monday (https://bit.ly/V4EZ9e ) that police said Marquis Johnson of Hatfield was found on Sunday with a Pennsylvania license plate sticking out from his shirt and shorts, and smelled of marijuana.

Police say a key in Johnson’s possession matched a vehicle about 2 miles away that didn’t have a license plate.

They say he wouldn’t answer questions about the vehicle, and they found marijuana in the car. The vehicle had less than 700 miles on the odometer and was traced to a dealership.

Johnson is charged with unauthorized use of a vehicle, abandoning a vehicle and drug possession. Court records didn’t list a defense attorney.
