A new report has sought to reveal details about the past of House Speaker John Boehner's soon to be son-in-law, by detailing how police records show he was once arrested for possession of marijuana.
The report, released Wednesday, shows that Jamaica-born Dominic Lakhan was arrested in Florida back in 2006 after he was pulled over by police following a driving infraction, according to the NY Daily News.
The subsequent police report showed that Lakhan had around four grams of marijuana in his an ashtray. An "officer also detected the odor of burnt cannabis emitting from the interior of the vehicle," according to the police report.
The Pembroke Pines officer found an open alcohol container that was located in the driver door. Cops "observed in plain view a 16 oz. Natural Light beer can opened in the driver door," according to the police report.
Lakhan, 38, told police that the cannabis was "for personal use," but he was placed into custody and charged with misdemeanor possession, the report added.
The marijuana incident occurred in 2006, but it was not the first time that Lakhan has had a run-in with law enforcement. In 2003, Lakhan was charged with possession of an open container of alcohol while driving, court records show.
Lindsay Boehner, 35, and Lakhan are scheduled to tie the knot on May 10, according to an Internet registry listed for "Lindsay Boehner and Dominic Lakhan."
Lindsay Boehner reportedly lives in a four-bedroom home in Hollywood, Fla., which is a short distance from where her fiancé reportedly resides in Delray Beach.
