EARLY, Texas (CBS/AP) A message between old friends who hadn't been in touch for a while led to a drug arrest after the recipient of the "So do you smoke weed?" text turned out to be a police officer.

Amanda Williams, a reserve officer with the Early, Texas Police Department, said  the man who texted her last Tuesday didn't know that these days she wears a badge.

The Brownwood Bulletin reported Friday that Williams said she received the text asking about getting together to smoke some marijuana.

Williams let fellow officers know that she agreed to meet the man at a park.

Her colleagues and Texas troopers were on hand to detain the San Angelo man, who faces a marijuana possession charge.

Maybe a copy of  "Texting for Dummies" would be helpful, too?
