The economic downturn has forced many people to save money on food in unconventional ways, from reinventing leftovers to organizing food swaps. However, one man may have crossed the line when it comes to creativity.
Shawn Pannullo was arrested in Vero Beach, FL, for trying to pay for his McDonald's meal with pot. The incident occurred just after midnight, at which time a McDonald's cashier called 911. Pannullo, 27, was charged with possession of cannabis and posted $500 bail. A report didn't disclose whether he ultimately paid for the meal using something other than marijuana.
While possession of cannabis is obviously a crime, I must admit I find this story entertaining. The report also failed to list what Pannullo ordered at McDonald's. I'm guessing . . . three of everything?
