The state on Feb. 19 entered a nolle prosequi plea for each of the charges, meaning the prosecution has abandoned the charge.

Police responded to a car accident where they found Boone in the driver’s seat, police alleged in charging documents. While police were attempting to speak with Boone, they noticed that his speech and movements were slow. Boone told police he passed out and didn’t remember anything until he hit the truck, police said in the documents.

Police soon smelled the odor of marijuana coming from Boone’s car and noticed multiple white spray cans of 10-ounce Electronic Duster cans, police said in the charging documents. Police conducted a probable cause search and found a jar with bags containing a total of 13 grams of marijuana and a small black digital scale. Boone was taken to Carroll Hospital before being transported to the Carroll County Detention Center, according to the documents.
