MARIETTA, Ga. – A man says police cited him outside Atlanta for eating a cheeseburger while driving.
Madison Turner, who’s from Alabama, tells Atlanta station WSB-TV he ordered a double quarter-pounder with cheese from a McDonald’s in the Marietta area shortly before he was pulled over last week.
Turner says the officer told him he saw him eating the cheeseburger for two miles, telling the man, “You can’t just go down the road eating a hamburger.”
The ticket, issued under Georgia’s distracted driving law, states in the comments section that the offense is “eating while driving.”
