Cop Punished After Mistaking 65-Year-old Man's Doughnut Leftovers for Meth

An Orlando cop believed glaze from a Krispy Kreme treat was a narcotic.

A Florida police officer who arrested a man on suspicion he had meth littering his car's floor has been punished for the mistake, officials say.

It turns out it was just crumbs from a Krispy Kreme doughnut.

Cpl. Shelby Riggs-Hopkins was given a written reprimand for the goof, which happened in Orlando back in 2015.

The doughnut-eater was Daniel Rushing, who Riggs-Hopkins pulled over in December of that year after the 65-year-old had dropped off a friend at a chemotherapy treatment.

The officer reportedly said Rushing failed to come to a complete stop before pulling out of a convenience store parking lot.

During the stop, Riggs-Hopkins reportedly said she noticed "a rock like substance on the floor board where his feet were," which she then field tested and got a positive result, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

Rushing was arrested on suspicion of methamphetamine with a firearm and held for 10 hours, according to the paper.

This, despite Rushing's reported insistence that he'd eaten one of the sugar-glazed confections earlier and had likely dropped some of the crystalline coating on the floor.

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