Orlando Man Arrested After Police Mistake What Man Says Was Doughnut Crumbs for Illegal Drugs

Now we have to worry about - carrying donuts?

From ABC News, Catherine Thorbecke

Man Arrested After Police Mistake Donut Glaze for Meth

"Every other Wednesday I stop at Krispy Kreme and get a doughnut there, and they found little, four little, flakes of the icing," Rushing said. “They said, 'We found what we thought was crack cocaine in the beginning, but now we think it's methamphetamines.'"

Rushing told ABC News today that he had just dropped his friend off at chemotherapy when he was pulled over by the police. "They said, 'Would you mind if I search your car?' and I said, 'I don't have anything to hide.'"

The evidence was submitted to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) for further testing, Sgt. Wanda Miglio of the Orlando Police Department told ABC News today. The results for the FDLE test were negative, so no charges were ultimately filed against Rushing by the State Attorney's Office.

Miglio emphasized that the arrest itself was lawful, "meaning that based on the officer's experience, and the field drug test that came up positive, probable cause existed to make a lawful arrest."

Miglio also added that the "the substance was not in fact found to be krispy kreme flakes. FDLE testing just determined it wasn't a controlled substance."

1. I'm calling bullshit on this

Cops are experts on donuts. Not only should the officer have deduced that it was donut crumbs, they should have been able to give the exact store number and time of day they were made.

2. I definitely call BS on the

Positive field drug test. They're unreliable and give many false positives
