Maryland Carnival Worker Accused of Smoking Marijuana in a Portable Restroom

A Maryland carnival worker in charge of operating rides has been arrested after he was found smoking marijuana in a portable restroom Thursday while on break at the carnival grounds.

John C. Decker, 21, of Brooklyn Park, was in control of a ride intended for children at a carnival off of Marlboro Avenue in Easton, Maryland, Easton police said.

Authorities smelled the odor, searched Decker, and found Oxycodone and suspected marijuana in his possession, Easton police said.

Decker has been charged with possession of controlled dangerous substances, possession of paraphernalia and reckless endangerment. He was also issued a civil citation for possession of marijuana under 10 grams.

He has been released on a $3,500 bond and it is not clear if he has hired an attorney, according to jail records.
