(KAIR)--A woman is offered marijuana by the operator of a ride at the Atchison County Fair in Effingham, and he goes to jail for his inappropriate generosity.

That's the allegation made by Atchison County Sheriff Jack Laurie who told MSC News it happened Wednesday night as the woman was observing her child on the ride. “There was a parent watching the child ride the ride there. The male started making some inappropriate advances to the female that was watching their child. It ended up that [the ride operator] offered marijuana to that citizen. She ended up reporting it to the deputies that were working at the fair that night.”

Arrested around 10:15 was 26-year-old Hunter Vaughn, of Pine Bluff, Arkansas.

He faces charges for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia after deputies located what's identified as marijuana and numerous drug paraphernalia items.

Following his arrest, Vaughn was booked into the Atchison County Jail.
