From the Vermont Burlington Free Press:
Police: Passengers smoked pot during DUI traffic stop
Two drunk passengers in a car stopped by police were caught smoking pot � less than 20 ft. from Vermont State Troopers � while waiting for a sober driver to pick them up, Vermont State Police said.

One of those passengers, Kris Richards, 30, of St. Albans, told Troopers that it was probably a "dumb idea" to be smoking marijuana while at a DUI traffic stop, according to police.

Troopers stopped the car, driven erratically by Scott Patterson, 30, of Highgate, at 12:27 a.m. Sunday on Berkshire Center Road in Berkshire, police said. Police arrested Patterson on suspicion of driving drunk, saying his blood alcohol content was 0.187 percent.

Troopers said they placed Patterson in their cruiser, returned to Patterson�s car and discovered two of his three passengers, Richards and Jason Beyor, 31, of St. Albans, smoking pot. Police identified the third passenger as Sabrina Stewart, 28, of St. Albans.

Police cited Beyor to appear March 28 in Vermont Superior Court in St. Albans on suspicion of possessing marijuana. Police cited Patterson to appear March 14 in Vermont Superior Court in St. Albans on suspicion of driving under the influence � his alleged second offense.
Yikes -- what's next? A try at the Darwin Awards?
