Police mistake Krispy Kreme icing for crystal meth

Absolutely none of us have been there. Can't relate. Not happened to even a single one of you. 

Police in (guess! go on! guess!) America, mistook icing from a Krispy Kreme donut for Crystal Meth. 

Let's backtrack, shall we?

Daniel Rushing, a 64-year-old from Orlando, was arrested on drug charges after police officers noticed four tiny flakes of glaze on his car floor after pulling him over.

They thought - and yes, you know what they thought - they were pieces of crystal methamphetamine.

“I recognized through my eleven years of training and experience as a law enforcement officer the substance to be some sort of narcotic,” Cpl. Shelby Riggs-Hopkins later wrote in the arrest report. 

To make matters worse, two roadside drug tests tested positive for the illegal substance, which yay, police funding. Yay, reliable equipment.

Rushing was arrested on the spot but a crime laboratory test cleared him a few weeks later. 

“It was incredible,” he said. “It feels scary when you haven’t done anything wrong and get arrested... It’s just a terrible feeling.”

“I kept telling them, ‘That’s ... glaze from a doughnut'."  

A lesson here for us all. EVERY LAST ONE OF US.
