Williams was then asked what he was on, and he advised “I just smoked bud, it’s in there”, and he pointed to the vehicle.  Williams attempted to explain who he was there to see, and with the names provided it was determined he was talking about a family that live on Sealy Ridge.  Williams was advised he was not on Sealy Ridge and he stated “huh”, and appeared confused.  Williams was detained and a pat down completed prior to placing him in the patrol vehicle.  When asked again about any weapons that I needed to know about he advised he had a “little tiny pistol over here”.    Lt.
