Police in Alabama say they caught a man "double-texting" with two phones while driving with his knees.

Authorities also found $4,500 in cash and prescription drugs in the car after they stopped Dandre Moore on a traffic violation in a tunnel in Mobile on Tuesday, the Mobile County Sheriff's Office told NBC News.

Moore, 19, told deputies he had been "double-texting" since he was 15 years old.

Deputies also arrested passenger Dartavious Moore after finding an ounce of marijuana in his underwear, sheriff’s spokeswoman Lori Myles told the Press-Register newspaper.

Two women and a 3-year-old were in the backseat.

Dandre Moore was charged with illegal possession of the Xanax and possession of a controlled substance. Dartavious Moore was charged with possessing marijuana, Mobile TV station WAFF reported.

Both men live in Philadelphia, Miss., according to the Press-Register.
