LOG ANGELES -- A Los Angeles high school assistant baseball coach was arrested Monday on suspicion that he smoked marijuana with half a dozen teenaged students before and after an outing to Dodger Stadium, officials said.

Pedro Cruz Trujillo, 24, was booked on six counts of child endangerment Monday, a month after a staff member at the school overheard students talking about the incident and notified police.


Investigators said Trujillo took six students, ranging in age from 14 to 16 years old, to a Dodgers game on May 18. He is suspected of allowing some of those students to smoke marijuana in his car on the way to and from the game.
