Wednesday, October 3, 2012 - 12:15pm

New Orleans police cited an assistant city attorney after they say he had a marijuana cigarette.

According to police, Jason Cantrell was in Magistrate Court when the joint fell out of his pocket.

The mayor's office says Cantrell was working on a private case at the time -- and not for the city.

According to the NOPD, Cantrell was speaking with an officer at the time while inside Magistrate Court.

Cantrell's wife, Latoya, is a candidate for the New Orleans City Council B seat.
