Police officer arresting a young man at night

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) — Police in Florida say a 23-year-old man went through a McDonald’s drive-thru and tried to pay for his order with a bag of marijuana.

News outlets report Port St. Lucie police say the fast food worker denied the trade and Anthony Andrew Gallagher drove off, only to return again a short time later. Police arrested him Sunday on charges of marijuana possession and driving under the influence.

Police were alerted to Gallagher’s offer early Sunday morning and got a description of him from the worker. They say a suspect matching his description went through the drive-thru a little while later and police approached him.

It’s unclear if Gallagher attempted to pay for his order with drugs the second time. It’s also unclear if he has a lawyer.

    My issue is, had the suspect been a black man the article would have clearly stated it and his face would have been centered in the photo. Instead, they never gave his ethnicity and showed more of the officer in the arresting photo than the criminal.

    So I guess his brain cells were fried? He couldn’t order delivery pizza, nasty chinese, or from a sub shop. He should be dealt with accordingly for “weeding out” and driving.
