A City of Poughkeepsie man was busted for smoking pot with three juvenile girls after being stopped for running a red light, according to the Dutchess County Sheriff's Office.

Tajai L. White, 20, was arrested at 11:30 p.m. Wednesday after deputies stopped his vehicle on Parker Avenue for running a red light, said Capt. John Watterson.

During the stop, the deputy found three juveniles, ages, 11, 13, and 14, in the vehicle and a further investigation found that white had marijuana and had been smoking it with the teens, Watterson added.

White was charged with three counts of unlawfully dealing with a child; three counts of endangering the welfare of a child; unlawful possession of marijuana, and running a red light.

After being processed,  White was released on appearance tickets and is due to reappear before the City of Poughkeepsie Court on Jan. 15.
