The boy's parents agreed to a search of their home by police who found less then an ounce of marijuana in the basement, along with other drug paraphernalia, according
to the Hartford Courant.
Sulzbach was released on a written promise to appear. His court date has been set for December 22, on the charges filed by the Connecticut police.
