Man released from prison re-arrested an hour later

FLORENCE, AZ - Pinal County authorities say a man ended up back in custody about an hour after he was released from prison.

The Sheriff's Office says 34-year-old Daniel Clegg was arrested Thursday following an Interstate 10 traffic stop that turned up marijuana and a loaded handgun under Clegg's seat in a car in which he was a passenger.

Clegg had been released from a privately operated in a state prison Thursday morning after serving a term on a drug conviction from Pima County.

The Sheriff's Office says he's been booked into jail on suspicion of possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and misconduct involving a weapon.
