Police brought in a K-9 unit to search Caletri's car and found a leafy-green substance suspected to be marijuana as well as two open cellophane bags with nothing inside them.

Police arrested Caletri for battery of a school teacher, possession of marijuana and possession of narcotics on school property.

He was transported to the Terrebonne Parish jail and is currently awaiting trial or bond.
