HOUSTON, TEXAS (KPRC) - A Houston man was arrested after police say he gave his child drugs to hide during a traffic stop.

A spokesperson with the Harris County District Attorney's Office said Terrance Cooper was pulled over by an officer on Tuesday. Cooper allegedly put a bag of crystal meth and marijuana in his 8-year-old son's pocket so the officer would not see it.

According to the spokesperson with the DA's office, Cooper's son told the officer the drugs were "candy."

Cooper is charged with endangering a child. He is being held on $20,000 bond.
