SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — San Jose police say they have arrested a 20-year-old after-school program leader for selling marijuana to two students at Willow Glen Middle School.

Police said Thursday that Edward Diaz was arrested Tuesday by officers responding to reports that he was selling marijuana. Diaz was tutoring in the school's "Think Together" program which aims to help close achievement gaps.

Think Together spokesman Tony Dodero said Thursday that Diaz had cleared two federal background checks, and that the organization was shocked and disappointed to learn of his alleged behavior. Dodero said the nonprofit launched in 1994 has never had a similar incident.

Move to Washington St. or Colorado. They'd just tax him.
