Former KSDK-TV (Channel 5) reporter Jeff Small agreed last week to enter the St. Louis Circuit Court drug program on felony and misdemeanor drug charges.
Small, 44, of the 2000 block of Hereford Street in St. Louis, was arrested Jan. 6 during a traffic stop. Police discovered that Small had active bench warrants in several jurisdictions and he was placed under arrest.
A subsequent search uncovered a small amount of what later tested to be methamphetamine and two glass pipes that appeared to contain meth residue.
Small, who worked at KSDK for nine years, left the station in 2012. He later joined a public relations firm that worked with the city of Ferguson during protests after the August 2014 police killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown.
If Small completes the drug court program successfully, the case will be dismissed and the charges will be erased from his record, said Travis Noble, Small's attorney.
