UNION, S.C. (WSPA) — Two men are facing charges after deputies say they were found parked near a ball field with a teen and marijuana.

A Union County deputy responded to a suspicious vehicle call Friday night at the Monarch Ball field.

The deputy smelled marijuana while approaching a car at the back of the ball field on the walking trail, according to a sheriff’s office report. 

The driver, named in the report as Kenon Leon Douglas, 21, of Blacksburg, told a deputy he stopped to check a tire after hitting a pothole. 

Deputies say Douglas later handed over a bag of what appeared to be marijuana that was in a book bag in the trunk.

A girl in the backseat wearing a long tee-shirt provided different birth dates to deputies before they determined she was 13 years old.

Douglas and a front-seat passenger, identified as Malik Bernard Shifty, 21, of Gaffney, told deputies they thought the girl was 17 and were just hanging out with her.

Douglas and Shifty are charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor, according to the report. Douglas is also charged with simple possession of a marijuana.

The girl was released on a charge of “being incorrigible” to her mother’s custody, the report says.
