A 23-year-old Florida man was arrested this week after police said he tried to pay for McDonald’s with a bag of marijuana.
Anthony Andrew Gallagher was driving a four-door Pontiac when he pulled into the fast-food drive-thru in Post St. Lucie around 2 a.m. Sunday, according to Port St. Lucie police.
As he drove up to the window to pay, an employee said he was offered a bag of pot instead of cash, police said. He was refused his order and then drove off.
After responding to the call and gathering information, officers said Gallagher, apparently still with the munchies, came back to the same drive-thru for more.
They approached him and “noticed a heavy odor of marijuana emitting from the car,” their report states. They also found 11 grams of pot on him.
Gallagher, of Port St. Lucie, admitted to trying to barter pot for food, but said it was just a joke, police reported.
He was charged with possession of marijuana and DUI, and booked into the St. Lucie County Jail.
