A UI student faces drug-related charges after he allegedly threw a bag of marijuana and a pipe from his window early Thursday morning.

According to a complaint by UI police, Daniel Watson, 20, was charged after a security guard called police around 4 a.m. after detecting the odor of marijuana coming from his room, 4238 Burge.

When police arrived, Watson allegedly threw a bag of marijuana and a one-hitter pipe from his window. The complaint said a security guard on the ground floor observed the items being thrown.

When police made contact with Watson, he allegedly denied smoking marijuana. One of the other subjects in the room said the marijuana — as well as prescription Adderall pills that were present — belonged to Watson, according to the complaint.

Watson is charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of a prescription drug without a valid prescription.
