Bossier City spokesman Mark Natale says authorities found items that tested positive for synthetic marijuana in Bretherton's hotel room, along with a device commonly used to smoke narcotics. Natale said police were called on April 28 to a Bossier City hotel following a 911 hang-up call from the room.

The reality show star and his wife surrendered to cops on Friday and were released later that day after posting a $6,000 bond each.
