MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — A Texas couple says a Tennessee sheriff’s deputy pulled them over after mistaking a car decal of the buckeye leaf for a marijuana leaf.

Bonnie and Guido Jonas-Boggioni told The Commercial Appeal that they are laughing about it now, but back on Feb. 4, they were confused when a Shelby County Sheriff’s deputy pulled them over as they were driving on Interstate 40 after coming back from a family member’s funeral in Ohio.

Bonnie Jonas-Boggioni said the deputy asked her why she had a marijuana sticker on the back of her car. He was referring to her Ohio State Buckeyes sticker, featuring a five-pointed leaf that is different than the seven-pointed marijuana leaf. She said after explaining the difference to the deputy, they continued their trip.
