Man Gets Ticket for Eating a Hamburger

An Alabama man ran into trouble with the law last week for eating while driving.

Georgia police pulled over Madison Turner for driving while eating a McDonald’s hamburger outside Atlanta last week, WSBTV reports. Police called it distracted driving and slapped him with a ticket.

“Maybe I was enjoying the burger too much I needed to tone it down,” Madison told WSBTV. “I was certainly willing to do so but I didn’t expect to be fined or punished.”

The officer watched the man eat a double quarter pounder with cheese for two miles, New York Daily News reports.

“Maybe if you had a giant pizza in both hands and you weren’t holding the wheel or maybe if you had a watermelon, half watermelon and you were just diving into it holding it with both hands, maybe that would be something,” William Head, a local lawyer not representing Madison, told WSBTV.

Head said eating and driving normally only comes into play when there is an accident. Madison has a court date Feb. 3.
