ELSMERE, KY (FOX19) - A Kenton County, Ky. man has pled guilty to possession of cocaine, but the best thing about the case is what he was wearing when he was arrested.

Derrick Morton, 26, was arrested by Elsmere Police while wearing a T-shirt claiming he is a "D.A.R.E. Role Model."

D.A.R.E. is an anti-drug program that stands for "Drug and Alcohol Resistance Education."

Morton has had several drug charges in the past. He will be sentenced on the cocaine possession charges next month. Prosecutors are asking for a two year sentence.
