ASHEVILLE, NC (FOX Carolina) -
Asheville police said a driver smoking synthetic marijuana was stopped after officers noticed a gas nozzle and hose still in his gas tank.
Police said 32-year-old William Buchanan, of Nebo, had driven to Asheville to purchase a large amount of synthetic marijuana from a store. They said after his purchase, Buchanan smoked some of the substance and then stopped for gas at a station on Tunnel Road.

Police said that officers stopped Buchanan on U.S. Highway 70 when they noticed the hose hanging from his vehicle. They said that Buchanan was smoking from a pipe with a gas can in his passenger's seat when he was stopped.
Buchanan was charged with driving while intoxicated and damage to property.
