BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) -- The actor who played David Starsky in the 1970s police drama "Starsky & Hutch" has found himself on the other side of real law enforcement in Kentucky.

Bowling Green police arrested 69-year-old Paul Michael Glaser of Venice, Calif., hours after he read an excerpt of his young adult novel, "Chrystallia and the Source of Light," to students at a middle school on May 10.

According to a citation, Glaser said he had medical marijuana prescribed to him in California.

Bowling Green-Warren County Drug Task Force Director Tommy Loving told The Daily News (http://bit.ly/KjhhbV ) that Kentucky doesn't recognized medical marijuana licenses.

Glaser faces possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. He is scheduled to appear in Warren District Court on May 31. Court records did not list an attorney for him.
