Cab Driver Charged With Giving Teen Passenger Pot

KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) — Authorities have arrested a taxi driver they say asked a teenage passenger to fix him up with a girl in exchange for pot and alcohol.

The 15-year-old passenger told Osceola County deputies that driver Aaron Clements picked him up in central Florida on Thursday and dropped him off at a party. After the party, authorities said Clements convinced the teen to find a female for him to hang out with. The teen said he contacted a 15-year-old friend on Facebook and they drove to pick her up. Authorities said Clements gave the teens cigarettes, alcohol and pot.

Authorities said they also found drug paraphernalia and pornographic videos in the car.

Clements was charged on Friday with drug possession and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Drug charges against the teens are pending.
