“The McDonald's worker told police that a man in a Pontiac four-door drove through the drive-thru of the McDonald's trying to exchange a baggie of marijuana for food,” police said in a Facebook post.

The McDonald’s employee reportedly refused and Gallagher left the fast-food chain before police were called. However, Gallagher returned to the drive-thru later and officers, who had been given a description of the vehicle and Gallagher, stopped him.

Gallagher reportedly told police he offered to exchange marijuana for the food as a joke.
