KANSAS CITY - Representative Jeremy LaFaver, D-Kansas City, apologized to family and constituents Sunday after he was arrested in Boone County for marijuana possession.

LaFaver said in a statement that his vehicle was stopped in Boone County on Sunday for his failure to respond to a charge that he had operated his vehicle with an expired license tag and without insurance.

While the vehicle was stopped, he was cited with possession of a marijuana pipe and a small quantity of marijuana.

LaFaver apologized for the incident and said he is prepared to face the consequences of his actions.

"I want to assure my constituents that I have received no special considerations, nor do I expect to be treated any differently than any other citizen in my situation," LaFaver said.
