A Bartlesville father is behind bars after his child reportedly told police that his father made him eat marijuana.

Bartlesville Police were serving a warrant on the suspect, Carl Holder, 31, because there were complaints that he has been attempting to make his children eat marijuana. They approached his residence at 132 S. Kaw.

Officers found the suspect inside a vehicle along with a small child in the back seat. Police reported a strong smell of marijuana inside the vehicle along with a smoking pipe and loose marijuana on top of an XBOX video game case.

Holder had a strong smell of alcohol and was slurring his words, the court affidavit said.

While dealing with Holder, officers noticed three juveniles in the front yard of the residence. One of them reportedly came up to officers and told them that his dad made him eat marijuana and put it in his nose. The child told officers that it tasted bad so he spit it out.

Holder was then arrested and transported to the Washington County Detention Center.
