Steven Glover was standing outside his school with his friends when he offered them mints. Police officers approached Steven and asked him to show them what he had just passed to his friend's hand. He told the officers he had just given his friend a mint from a tin container and opened his mouth to show he was also eating a mint. Without obtaining Steven's consent, the officers searched his pockets. They eventually found a small pen knife and remnants of marijuana in his pocket. Steven was not charged with possession of the pen knife, but was charged with possession of marijuana in public view. He remained in Central Booking from Thursday to Saturday.
