Daniel Rushing 65 says he still eats Krispy Kreme doughnuts every other week despite the

Daniel Rushing told the Orlando Sentinel that he had never done drugs. Daniel Rushing, 65, was taken to jail in 2015 and spent 10 hours there before posting $2,500 bond. He agreed to let his vehicle be searched, and when officers spotted crystals on the floor and tested them, they came up positive for methamphetamine. In the arrest report, police noted "a rock-like substance on the floor board where his feet were" in Rushing's vehicle. It took the police several weeks to discover that it wasn't illegal methamphetamine that the officer found; it was the remains of a Krispy Cream doughnut, according to the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. Despite stating that the bits were sugar glazes from a Krispy Kreme doughnut he had consumed earlier, cops arrested Rushing on the charges of methamphetamine possession.

Rushing was originally pulled over for failing to come to a complete stop. On receiving a clean chit from the crime lab, the drug allegations against the victim were dropped.

Rushing told the officer the substance was just flakes from the glaze of a Krispy Kreme doughnut he'd eaten, but the officer wrote in the arrest report that she "recognised through my eleven years of training and experience as a law enforcement officer the substance to be some sort of narcotic". The charge also still appears on his record. He told them he got one every other week.
