A Bryan man was arrested early Wednesday after authorities said he had nearly 60 Ecstasy tablets in his pocket.

According to Bryan police, authorities were patrolling the area around Neal Park around 2 a.m. and saw a man standing under a gazebo. The officer noted in his report the park has a curfew of 11 p.m. until 5 a.m.

The officer spoke with Derick Dontae Ross, 38, and asked him what he was doing. Ross explained he had stopped for a drink of water and did not know of the curfew. Dispatchers told police Ross was wanted on a misdemeanor warrant.

The officer took Ross into custody and during a search found a small container holding 57 Ecstasy tablets, police said.

He is charged with delivery of seven grams of Ecstasy, a first-degree felony punishable by up to 99 years in prison. He is being held in the Brazos County jail on $50,680 bond.
