San Antonio Mayor Ivy Taylor’s step-son has been arrested for possession of marijuana.

Police say they arrested Aaron Marshall Taylor, 19, at about 10 p.m. Monday after they were called about a suspicious vehicle.

When officers arrived, they found Taylor and another person sitting in a silver sedan. An investigating officer says that they smelled marijuana and found a bag with an unspecified amount of marijuana inside Taylor’s pocket, according to News 4 San Antonio.

According to a SAPD incident report, officers also found a pipe in the floorboard of the vehicle, along with a grinder with residue.

After being handcuffed, Taylor claimed to be a relative of the city’s mayor.

Mayor Taylor addressed the situation during an event Tuesday morning outside the Alamo calling it a family matter. “Families go through challenges,” she said. “And I just ask everyone to pray for our family at this time.”

Requests for comment concerning Taylor’s stance on marijuana laws in Texas went unreturned earlier this year.

Possession of two ounces or less of marijuana in Texas can result in up to 180 days in jail with a $2,000 fine and the suspension of the offender’s driver’s license.

Taylor was released Tuesday morning, his bond amount was set at $800.

    Everyone uses cannabis, not a certain type of person. Can the politicians please open their f*cking eyes and stop marginalizing half of the population for something that is more beneficial than harmless? …

    Let him go. He’s not a criminal. The anti-cannabis law is the criminal.
