BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A North Carolina man and a Georgia man were arrested in Baton Rouge after calling the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office when they finished smoking an herbal incense Friday night, according to the sheriff's office.

Just before 8 p.m., deputies with EBRSO were called to Sherwood Commons Blvd. after a man, now identified as 45-year-old Jimmy Charles McCoy of Blairsville, GA, said he and his friend, 28-year-old Joshua Emmanuel Marshall of Asheville, NC, smoked a substance called Blue Diemond.

McCoy told deputies that Marshall was "out of his head now" because of the substance they smoked.

Deputies searched the vehicle and found a package of Blue Diemond in the vehicle, along with a glass pipe used for smoking the substance.

In the probable cause affidavit, deputies report the Blue Diemond packaging specifically states "FOR AROMATHERAPY ONLY. NOT FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION. DO NOT INHALE, CONSUME OR BURN."

Both McCoy and Marshall said the pipe did not belong to them, but the did admit to smoking out of the pipe, according to the report.

They are both being held in the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on charges of abuse of toxic vapors and possession of drug paraphernalia. No bonds have been set.
