DUNCAN, OK (KSWO) -A Duncan couple is behind bars after being accused of smoking synthetic marijuana in in their car with two young kids in the backseat.

Police say they found Chance and Tabitha Derryberry in the parking lot of a rural water plant on Old Highway 81 after receiving calls of a car driving into oncoming traffic and being all over the road. The first officer on the scene said when he approached the car, he could smell marijuana emanating from the vehicle. The officer spotted two young boys passed out in the backseat and commanded the parents to show their hands.

Chance Derryberry tried to start the car, but was ordered to get out and he obeyed. The officer said both of the Derryberrys were slow to act and were “zombie-like.” Their eyes were said to be so dilated that it was hard to make out what color their irises were supposed to be. The officer stated they both continued to eat a “green leafy substance” and it took multiple attempts to get them to stop.

The two children in the backseat, three and seven years old, eventually came around and were checked out by emergency responders before being taken to Duncan Regional Hospital. The children were then put into protective custody.

During a search of the vehicle, police found four two-gram bags of “Black Voodoo,” which is a variation of K2, or synthetic marijuana. Chance Derryberry told the officer he bought it from a store in Lawton. Derryberry said he and Tabitha took a cigar wrapper and mixed in the K2 before smoking it. Tabitha Derryberry did not want to speak to police.

Chance Derryberry was arrested at 12:56 a.m. Thursday, March 3, for actual physical control, possession of a controlled dangerous substance, destruction of evidence and child endangerment.

Tabitha Derryberry was arrested at the same time for public intoxication, possession of a controlled dangerous substance, destruction of evidence and child endangerment.

They were charged later that day and both are being held on a bond of $1 million.
