Butler was driving his 2008 Hummer H3 when he allegedly failed to move over to the left lane while passing another motorist pulled over by a state trooper Saturday night.
According to an NHP report, the trooper then stopped Butler and reported smelling marijuana.
``The driver stated he smoked marijuana 40 minutes ago,'' the trooper wrote in the report. ``I gave the driver field sobriety tests. He showed signs of intoxication. I advised the driver he was under arrest and took him into custody.''
The trooper also reported finding a small amount of marijuana in Butler's car. Possession of less than an ounce is a misdemeanor in Nevada.
