PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) – Police in Florida say a 23-year-old man went through a McDonald’s drive-thru and tried to pay for his order with a bag of marijuana.

Police arrested him Sunday on charges of marijuana possession and driving under the influence.
Police were alerted to Gallagher’s offer early Sunday morning and got a description of him from the worker.

They say a suspect matching his description went through the drive-thru a little while later and police approached him.
