New Jersey High School Teacher Accused of Smoking Pot With Student

A 30-year-old New Jersey high school teacher has been arrested for allegedly smoking pot with a 17-year-old student.

The arrest of West Milford High School Michael Fleming Tuesday stems from an investigation into the alleged pot-smoking several months earlier, in February, authorities said.

He was charged with endangering the welfare of a child. A conviction on that charge carries up to five years in state prison. 

Information on an attorney for Fleming wasn't known, and the West Milford School Superintendent's Office did not immediately respond to NBC 4 New York's request for comment.
