Florida Man Arrested After Cops Confuse Donut Glaze For Meth [Video]
Well, time to cue up the cop/donut references!
Back in December, Daniel Rushing was pulled over after leaving an Orlando 7-Eleven, because he failed to come to a complete stop while pulling out of the parking lot, and then going 12 miles per hour over the speed limit. Cops had been staking out the 7-Eleven because of suspected drug activity.
When Rushing was pulled over, the officer noticed a bag on the floor of his vehicle that she suspected to illegal narcotics, specifically meth. Rushing argued, insisting that the "drugs" were actually the remnants of a Krispy Kreme donut. The officer conducted a field test and, wouldn't you know it, it came back positive! Rushing was arrested, strip searched and eventually released on $2,500 bail.
Weeks later, the charges were finally dropped after another test of the "drugs" revealed that Rushing had been telling the truth all of the time! The substance in the bag was indeed leftover donut glaze from a Krispy Kreme donut! Rushing has now hired an attorney and is seeking damages.
This story is so Florida!
