      A 49-year-old northern Michigan radio news director pleaded guilty to drug charges on Tuesday in Mason County.

      Steve Ruba, of Ludington, plead guilty to possession of marijuana. Ruba is sentenced to one year of 'discretionary jail', which means if Ruba gets in any further trouble, this incident will resurface.

      Ruba is the news director for a seven-radio station network including WLDN radio.

      Mason County Sheriff's office arrested Ruba in the end of June during a traffic stop at Lakeshore Dr. and Iris Rd.

      According to the sheriff's office, Ruba was arrested for possessing 20 grams of marijuana that were packaged individually.
