GREENWICH - A New York City man appeared in court in Greenwich today on charges that he allegedly smoked pot in front of a toddler.

Mikel Turnier, 29, was caught by police on Monday when the officer smelled marijuana coming from his car on Greenwich Avenue. Turnier was found inside, smoking pot with a 16-month-old toddler sitting in the back seat.

Court documents indicate he's facing drug charges and a charge for risk of injury to a minor. The child has been turned over to child welfare officials.
