It certainly wasn’t a very happy meal for a Florida man, whom police arrested on felony narcotics charges over the weekend after a search of his McDonald’s Chicken McNuggets container found baggies of methamphetamine and fentanyl.
The Smoking Gun reports Police searched a backpack beloning to Eric Little at an extended stay hotel in Largo around 3:15 am on Sunday. They found a used syringe inside the backpack, along with a container of Chicken McNuggets. An examination of the box of nuggets revealed that while it indeed contain McNuggets, it also contained “approx. 7.5 grams of methamphetamine” as well as “a bag of fentanyl” weighing 1.3 grams, according to court affidavits.
Little was arrested on a pair of felony narcotics possession charges and a misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia count. He was freed from the county jail after posting $4,150 bond.
The 34-year-old has prior convictions for assault, narcotics possession, and violating probation. Little is scheduled for a September 5 court appearance.
