Police in El Segundo, Calif., say an anti-drug activist was arrested after he allegedly sold an undercover officer what he said were drugs.
The Los Angeles Times said Saturday that police have accused Over the Wall Foundation director Kendall Craig Farris of selling what he claimed was methamphetamine and ecstasy tablets to an undercover officer.
Authorities said the items allegedly sold by the 47-year-old founder of the Marina del Rey anti-drug program turned out to be fake.
Farris was being held on $106,500 bail on charges of selling a substance that he alleged was drugs following Thursday's arrest.
The Times said Farris, a reportedly recovering alcoholic and addict, is also the author of "Drugs, Kids and Crime: Surviving Our Drug Obsessed Culture."
