A Florida man was arrested after police say he waved down sheriff's deputies to show off his marijuana plant.

The whole incident was captured on body camera.

Flagler County sheriff's deputies say 65-year-old Arthur Carracino was smoking pot when they arrived to check out another incident.

Police say he called them over to check out his home-grown marijuana plant.

Carracino told the deputies he went to California to learn how to grow marijuana.

The deputies asked him if he had a marijuana card, to which he said "yeah, yeah, I do. I'm working on it."

While walking back to his home, Carracino told deputies that "you've got to smoke a bowl with me please."

After Carracino admitted he didn't have a marijuana card, deputies arrested him. He is now facing charges for producing marijuana.
