Man arrested for donut flakes that cop insisted was meth

If you've recently eaten a Krispy Kreme donut in your car, make sure to clean up the evidence.

Florida man Daniel Rushing was arrested for possessing donut glaze crumbs on the floor of his car. The retired 64-year-old man had just picked up a church friend from a 7-11 in Orlando and drove through a stop sign going a bit above the speed limit. This prompted the police officer, who was on the lookout for drug activity, to have him step out of his car. And that's when she noticed the offensive flakes of sugar glaze.

"I recognized through my 11 years of training and experience as a law enforcement officer the substance to be some sort of narcotic," the officer wrote in her report.

The officer conducted a roadside test, which mistakenly determined the glaze to be crystal meth.

He was handcuffed, arrested, taken to the county jail and strip searched, he said.

A state crime lab, however, did another test several weeks later and cleared him.

"It was incredible," he said. "It feels scary when you haven't done anything wrong and get arrested. … It's just a terrible feeling."

Rushing says he'll never let anyone search his car again and is now suing the city for damages. Read the full story at the Orlando Sentinel.
