Ethan Cutkosky, 18, was pulled over by Burbank police at around 10:30 p.m. on Nov. 2 after he was spotted driving erratically. Police say he was speeding, making unsafe turning movements and lane straddling.
Officers smelled burnt marijuana coming from the car, and Cutkosky admitted to them he had been smoking marijuana earlier in the evening, police said. He was eventually booked on a count of suspicion of DUI.
