The passenger had an odor of alcohol on his breath and was also in possession of a digital scale, a glass pipe and rolling papers, police said.

Police charged him with underage consumption of alcohol and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Both boys were charged with possession of marijuana for resale and released to their parents.

The boys were scheduled to appear in Juvenile Court Jan. 18.
