In doing so, Wooden handed a small plastic bag to police that contained 3.8 grams of marijuana. Murphy, on the other hand, was in possession of a spoon with heroin residue on it.
Wooden was immediately arrested for marijuana possession and Murphy was also booked and released for possession charges.
