EDMOND, Okla. (AP) _ The daughter of New Orleans Hornets head coach Byron Scott has been arrested in Edmond on a drug complaint.

Police say 19-year-old Londen Scott of Edmond was arrested for possession of marijuana at a construction site in southwest Edmond.

Police say an officer saw a car parked near barricades and as he investigated he smelled burning marijuana while talking with Londen Scott and a 21-year-old Stillwater man who was in the car.

A police report says a small amount of marijuana was found in a small pouch attached to Scott's keys.

Police say the man was not arrested. His name hasn't been released.

Byron Scott bought a home in Edmond after the Hornets were temporarily relocated to Oklahoma City for 35 games last season and this season because of hurricane damage in New Orleans.
