Orly Azulai, Washington DC correspondent for Yediot Aharonot, and her husband CBS Radio News reporter Howard Arenstein were arrested on marijuana charges in Washington.
DC police spokesman Lt. Nicholas Breul said Azulai and Arenstein were arrested early Saturday and charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana.
Breul says vice units had received a complaint of marijuana growing in the couple's backyard. Police then obtained a search warrant for the home in northwest DC.
Breul says officers found large, mature cannabis plants, standing more than 8 feet high. In addition, they found packaged marijuana inside the home.
