Even for a stoner this is pretty damn dumb…
An Elgin man who got a case of the munchies was arrested Monday after an officer witnessed him smoking marijuana in the drive-through lane of McDonald’s, according to police.
The officer was in the drive-through lane of the restaurant at 401 Summit St., Elgin, about 12:30 a.m. Monday when he smelled marijuana in the air, according to police spokeswoman Sue Olafson. Upon investigation, the officer determined the passenger of the car in front of him was smoking the illegal substance.
Police say they found additional cannabis in a container in the vehicle. In total, 1.4 grams was confiscated, Olafson said.
Jose Barrera, 21, of the 600 block of St. Charles Street, was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance. He has since been released on $120 bond.
Please sir for the love of Mary Jane get your life together. It’s just not wise to smoke weed when there is a Police officer sitting behind you. SMH
