Driving Backwards Through A Taco Bell Drive-Thru Might Give Police A Reason To Search Your Car

If you’ve got drugs in your car, you probably don’t want to do very much to draw the attention of the authorities. Just ask the Pennsylvania man who was arrested for marijuana possession after police watched him drive backwards while trying to order food from the Taco Bell drive-thru.

According to PennLive.com, police officers in Silver Spring Township, PA, watched as the 18-year-old drove his car in reverse to the cashier’s window at the fast food joint.

So they pulled the young man over and searched his car, which allegedly contained a small amount of marijuana. Police charged the driver with possession, along with a disorderly conduct charge for the backwards-driving antics. No mention of a DWI charge, so it’s possible this guy was completely sober and just making a stupid decision that landed him in custody and, presumably, without his to-go order.
