A Florida man who says he was arrested after police officers mistook crumbs from his Krispy Kreme doughnut for methamphetamine has reportedly been awarded $37,500 after reaching a settlement with the city of Orlando.

Daniel Rushing told the Orlando Sentinel that he received a check last week from the city of Orlando. Perhaps true in Never Never Land, but not so much in Orlando, as police learned when they applied a sort of desperate wishful thinking to try to score a big drug bust at a routine stop in December of 2015.

The arresting officer, Shelby Riggs-Hopkins said in her report that she had noticed the flakes on Rushing's floorboard when carrying out a search. Riggs-Hopkins arrested Rushing and took him into custody on the charge of possession of methamphetamine with a firearm.

Nonetheless, Rushing can now buy a whole lot of Krispy Kreme glazed doughnuts with his $37,500 payout.

In Riggs-Hopkins arrest report, she wrote he noticed a "rock like substance" on the floorboard of Rushing's vehicle and, through several years of experience in law enforcement recognized the substance as some sort of narcotic.

Rushing, a retiree who'd worked for decades with the city's parks department, told the Sentinel that he's had trouble finding work since the doughnut incident.

Speaking to the Orlando Sentinel, Rushing said: "I haven't been able to work".

Orlando police ended up training 730 officers how to use the roadside drug tests.

The police said that the arrest was lawful, despite the subsequent revelations, but were unsure why the glazing tested positive for the drugs. "People go online and see that you've been arrested".
