Obama's half brother arrested for marijuana possession

President Obama's half brother was arrested in Nairobi, Kenya, Saturday for possession of marijuana, the Dallas Morning News reported.

George Obama, who is in his 20s, allegedly had one joint of the drug on him, the area's police chief told BBC.

George Obama and the president share the same father, but have only met twice. He did not attend the president's inauguration, the Dallas Morning News said, although some of the president's Kenyan relatives did.

BBC reported that George Obama is studying to be a mechanic, and lives in Huruma with his extended family.

George Obama is scheduled to appear in court to face the drug charge Monday morning.
