HACKETTSTOWN, N.J. (AP) — A northern New Jersey man faces drug charges after handing police officers who asked for his identification a wallet containing marijuana.

Santos Vasques-Hernandez, of Hackettstown, faces drug possession and disorderly conduct charges after the Christmas Day incident.

Hackettstown police say it happened about 8 p.m. on Main Street when officers were called to the scene for a report of an unresponsive, unconscious man.

Authorities say police determined Vasques-Hernandez was breathing and seemed to be intoxicated.

Police say he then became “combative” and began swinging his fists at officers who asked for identification.

Vasques-Hernandez handed his wallet to officers who smelled marijuana, then found a baggy of the drug in the wallet.

It’s unclear whether Vasques Hernandez has an attorney. He was released pending a court appearance.
