Kyle Clipper, 27, of Hoboken, was charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance (marijuana), under the influence of CDS and bail jumping, according to Police Det. Lt. Edgardo Cruz.

Yesterday around 5:46 p.m., Police Officers Steven Albert and Robert Cuevas were patrolling the area of 6th and Jackson Streets when they observed Clipper in a slouched position, officials said.

As the officers approached the defendant, they could immediately detect the strong chemical odor coming from him which was consistent with the odor of Phencyclidine (PCP), authorities said.

Clipper could not answer questions posed to him by the officer due to his state of mind. He was placed under arrest for being under the influence of CDS. Furthermore, a search found him to be in possession of a small box containing suspected marijuana, police said.

He was also found to have an outstanding warrant from the City of Hoboken. He was transported and treated at the Hoboken University Medical Center and later released with a summons to appear in court, officials said.
