A Dothan man is accused of distributing a controlled dangerous substance to a minor.
On May 23 the Dothan Police Department arrested Timothy Bernard Barnes, 28, of Sturgeon Court following a recent investigation.
Investigators say a 15 year old juvenile was taken to the Southeast Alabama Medical Center after complaining of chest pains and shortness of breath. A medical examination revealed the juveniles medical condition was a result of recent marijuana use. Hospital personnel then notified the Dothan Police Department and through further investigation it was determined that the marijuana was given to the juvenile by Barnes, a neighbor of the juvenile.
Barnes faces one count of distributing a controlled dangerous substance to a minor. His bond has been set at $150,000.
