    What to Know

    • Port St. Lucie police say the fast food worker denied the trade and Anthony Andrew Gallagher drove off, only to return again later.

    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.

    News outlets report Port St. Lucie police say the fast food worker denied the trade and Anthony Andrew Gallagher drove off, only to return again a short time later. 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.

    It's unclear if Gallagher attempted to pay for his order with drugs the second time. It's also unclear if he has a lawyer.
