Florida police mistake Krispy Kreme icing for crystal meth

Police in Florida appear to have made ‘dopes’ of themselves after they arrested a man for possessing what they thought was crystal meth, when it was actually icing sugar from a Krispy Kreme doughnut.Orlando resident Daniel Rushing is now planning to sue over the case of mistaken amphetamine, and according to theOrlando Sentinel has been put off munching the sugary snack in his car for good. The 64-year-old was stopped by police in December last year due to an apparent traffic violation while leaving a store parking lot.During an inspection of his vehicle, officer Shelby Riggs-Hopkins discovered what she identified as “some sort of narcotic,”according to a police report published by the Sun Sentinel.“I retrieved the substance that I initially saw on the floor board and two other small pieces from the floor board of the driver side,” Riggs-Hopkins wrote.“Rushing stated that he has never done any drugs in his life and he has no idea how the substance got in his vehicle. Rushing stated that the substance is sugar from a Krispie Kreme Donut [sic] that he ate.”An initial police test showed that the substance was crack cocaine, before suspicions were raised that it was meth, reportsWFTV9.“I kept telling them, ‘That’s glaze from a doughnut… Then they said, ‘No, it’s meth, crystal meth,’” said Rushing.Rushing spent around 10 hours in a police cell before he was allowed to post bail of $2,500.
