GREENPORT - A Columbia County man pulled over for talking on a cell phone is now facing a drug charge as well.

33-year-old Jermaine Shivers of Hudson was pulled over just before noon Monday on Fairview Avenue in Greenport.

State police say they pulled him over for using the cell but found a small amount of marijuana in the car as they talked with him.

He's due in court on both violations on April 1.
