A student at Lassiter High School faces a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge and a felony methadone possession charge.
Michael Ballard, 17, was arrested after Lassiter Assistant Principal Ashlynn Campbell reportedly found “a very small amount” of marijuana and “several tablets” of methylone in Ballard’s 2001 Nissan Pathfinder parked at the high school, according to an arrest warrant.
Ballard has been released from jail on a $5,000 bond.
