GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - A deputy in north Florida has been arrested after police say they found drugs in his car after a traffic stop.

Gainesville police say 25-year-old Corian Garrison was stopped on Sunday at 4 a.m. after making an illegal right turn and for not wearing a seat belt.

Officers reported that Garrison, a deputy in neighboring Bradford County, had a joint and several pills containing hydrocodone in his car.

Police say Garrison admitted to the pot, but said an acquaintance who is a nurse gave him the pills.

The Gainesville Sun (https://bit.ly/1AhJTSk) reports that Garrison was booked into Alachua County jail on charges of marijuana possession and drug possession without a prescription.
