An Ontario County couple was arrested Saturday evening after deputies say they were smoking pot at a hotel with their infant son in the room.

Twenty-two-year-old Jennifer Snyder and 23-year-old Scott Peters are charged with unlawful possession of marijuana and endangering the welfare of child.

The Ontario County Sheriff's Office says that Snyder and Peters were smoking marijuana in a hotel room on Route 14 in Phelps around 5:10 p.m. Saturday evening. Deputies say the couple's infant son was also in the room at the same time.

Snyder and Peters were arraigned in Clifton Springs Village Court and released. They are scheduled to appear in Phelps Town Court at a later date to answer charges.
