Florida man offers to trade marijuana for food at McDonald's drive-thru

Florida man offers to trade marijuana for food at McDonald's drive-thru

According to Port St. Lucie police, Anthony Gallagher, 23, ordered at the drive-thru window around 2 a.m. and tried to trade a bag of marijuana for the food.

The man drove away in a Pontiac sedan after employees turned down the offer, police said. The McDonald's worker refused and the auto drove off.

When he went through the drive-thru a second time, police were there. That's when an officer made contact with him and noticed a heavy odor of marijuana coming from his auto. The officer said Gallagher's auto smelled of marijuana.

Police said Clesido illegally got a $16,000 loan from the same bank on a previous date, and had warrants for his arrest out of Georgia. The vehicle was described as "excessively dirty" and littered with french fries, chicken nuggets and moldy chicken wings.

They said that as MPs they had a right to be on the premises of a public establishment and to airtime on the public broadcaster. Orban's lawmakers have a two-thirds majority in parliament, allowing them to pass any law without opposition support.


According to police, Gallagher admitted offering the marijuana in exchange for his food, but said it was a joke. At the time of the incident, the suspect had a surfboard poking from the back of his vehicle. He was transported to the St. Lucie County Jail for booking.

Police arrested him Sunday on charges of marijuana possession and driving under the influence.

The local police department posted the suspect's mugshot to its Facebook page on Sunday.
