MAN ARRESTED WITH METH, THAT TURNED OUT TO BE KRISPY KREME DOUGHNUT

When the man stopped by the 7-Eleven without buying anything and left with an employee in his car, cops were suspicious.

Orlando police were staking out the convenience store, 938 W. Colonial Dr., after neighbors complained of drug activity, the Orlando Sentinel reported. Police saw the man in the silver Chevy leave without stopping at the stop sign and speed off going 42 miles per hour in a 30 mph zone, according to the report. They pulled him over.

The officer saw his concealed weapon license, asked to hold onto his gun for safety and had the driver get out of the car. That’s when the veteran officer saw four flakes of a white substance on the floor.  The state attorney’s office dropped the case, the Sentinel reported, but Rushing hired a lawyer. He plans to ask the city for damages. “It feels scary when you haven't done anything wrong and get arrested,” he told the paper. “It's just a terrible feeling."

"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 driver let her search the car, and she found more chunks, which two roadside tests showed were crystal methamphetamine.

Daniel Rushing was arrested, charged with possession with a weapon, strip-searched and jailed in December.

The 64-year-old Orlando man told officers he’d never done drugs in his life, and the crumbs were from his Krispy Kreme doughnut.

Weeks later, a state crime lab proved him right.

“I kept telling them, 'That's … glaze from a doughnut. … They tried to say it was crack cocaine at first, then they said, 'No, it's meth, crystal meth," Rushing told the Sentinel.

The 7-Eleven stop was a favor for a church friend, an elderly woman who worked at the service station, he told the paper. Rushing used to treat himself to a Krispy Kreme doughnut every other Wednesday and enjoyed the snack in his car.

The state attorney’s office dropped the case, the Sentinel reported, but Rushing hired a lawyer. He plans to ask the city for damages.

“It feels scary when you haven't done anything wrong and get arrested,” he told the paper. “It's just a terrible feeling."
