..... and what is Krispy Kreme putting on those donuts? Maybe they really are addictive!?

A man who was arrested after police mistook the glaze on his Krispy Kreme doughnut for crystal meth has received a $37,500 settlement.

Daniel Rushing, 64, sued the city of Orlando after he was arrested in December 2015 on drug charges. Law enforcement had spotted four small flakes of glaze on his floorboard and thought they were pieces of crystal methamphetamine.

Rushing told the officers they were likely bits of the Krispy Kreme doughnut he’d eaten earlier, but he was arrested for possession of methamphetamine after two roadside drug tests tested positive for an illegal substance.

"I couldn’t believe it,” Rushing told the Orlando Sentinel. “I’ve never even smoked a cigarette before, let alone meth.”

Weeks later, a state crime lab cleared Rushing of the drug allegations and charges against him were dropped.

Cpl. Shelby Riggs-Hopkins wrote in a Dec. 11 arrest report that she noticed flakes on Rushing’s floorboard. The police department at the time said the arrest was lawful and didn’t explain why the glaze tested positive for amphetamine in both field tests.

Riggs-Hopkins was given a written reprimand for making an improper arrest, and the Orlando Police Department ended up training more than 730 officers on how to properly use field-test kits.

    Is the cop "A Florida man"??

    Ie A Florida man tests Krispy Kream donut glaze as crystal meth.
    It's boring, and your lack of creativity knows no bounds.

    Wow!

    One would think that if anyone knows about donuts, it would be a cop.

    Okay, that was tacky, but I just had to say it.

    Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.

    You'd think a cop of all people would be expert in doughnut recognition.
    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    I was thinking like $2 and a Snickers.

    Well, a snickers is like $1.29, so I didn't over pay.

    Alright, drop your trousers and put your hands on your head.
