Authorities were called to a McDonald’s branch in Port St. Lucie Boulevard at 2 a.m. of Dec. 16 where a worker told them that Gallagher, who was driving a four-door Pontiac, tried to pay for his order with marijuana. He drove off upon the worker’s refusal, but returned a short time later and was caught going through the drive-thru again by the authorities.
“PSLPD officer made contact with the suspect and noticed a heavy odor of marijuana emitting from the car,” they wrote. “Police found approximately 11 grams of marijuana on the suspect.”
Gallagher told authorities he was just joking when he tried to offer marijuana in exchange for food. He, however, was still arrested for possession of marijuana and driving under the influence (DUI). He was also taken to the St. Lucie County Jail for booking. JB
