Man arrested after 7-year-old hands out meth tablets on a school bus

A 45-year-old man could be facing a drug charge after an elementary school student handed out methamphetamine pills on a Quebec school bus last month.

SQ spokesman Marc Tessier says the suspect was arrested Thursday and could be charged with possession.

The man was released on a promise to appear in court in July.

It's not clear what, if any, relationship the man has with the child.

Police opened an investigation after a 7-year-old boy handed out the tablets Feb. 20, apparently thinking they were candy.

The incident occurred on a school bus near Saint-Paul, about an hour north of Montreal.

Tessier says one child consumed part of a pill but nobody was harmed.
