A Florida man was arrested after another motorist allegedly spotted him smoking a bong while behind the wheel of a van with five child passengers.
Phillip Winters, 24, was taken into custody by police in Cape Coral on June 25 after cops received a tip about a man toking a marijuana pipe while driving at around 6:45 p.m, NBC-2 reports.
A few minutes later, an officer spotted a vehicle at a gas station that matched the one described by the witness.
The cop confronted the suspect and determined that Winters showed "signs of impairment," according to WINK News.
A police dog reportedly detected the scent of drugs coming from the vehicle -- which also contained five passengers between the ages of one and six. A search of the Chevy van uncovered several pipes and marijuana residue, according to investigators.
Winters has been charged with driving under the influence with a person under the age of 18 in the vehicle.
The suspect purportedly confessed to police that he had smoked pot eight hours before the incident -- but Winters told a reporter for NBC-2 not to believe investigators' version of events.
"The allegations aren't true," he said.
