Howard Arenstein, CBS News correspondent, arrested for pot possession

Veteran CBS Radio News correspondent Howard Arenstein, sixty, and his wife Orly Katz, fifty-seven, were arrested at their home Saturday (October. 2) in Washington D.C. after police searched the couple's home and found marijuana plants growing in the yard, reports the Washington Post.

The couple was charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana. The search came on an executed warrant that was issued after a tip from an area resident. The police reported said they found eleven mature marijuana plants and six 2-ounce bags of marijuana. Apparently each full-grown plant is considered equal to a pound of marijuana.

According to the CBS News Web site, Arenstein has supervised coverage and reported on such major Washington stories as the disputed 2000 presidential election, the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the war in Iraq.
