Florida Man Tries To Pay For Dunkin’ Donuts Coffee With Drugs

This just in: apparently you can’t buy stuff with drugs. Well, you can’t buy stuff at Dunkin’ Donuts at least.

Let’s all meet 30-year-old Richard Bourque. Bourque isn’t the most bright fella and I’ll tell you why: this dude walked into a Dunkin’ Donuts, ordered a coffee and then proceeded to try and buy it with prescription muscle relaxants. When Bourque’s offer was rejected, he simply walked out with the coffee.

The Smoking Gun

Cops subsequently located Bourque at a nearby McDonald’s. After he reportedly agreed to be searched, a patrolman located eight pills that were later identified as methocarbamol, a drug prescribed for muscle pain and stiffness.

Bourque was arrested when he could not produce a prescription for the pills (which he said were “given to him by ‘Aaron’”). Bourque was not charged with boosting the Dunkin’ Donuts coffee.

So this genius was then arrested on a drug charge, pleading no contest to a misdemeanor charge of possession of drugs without a prescription. He was fined $550 and sentenced to a day in jail. This isn’t the first time Bourque has been in trouble with the law, as his rap sheet also includes charges for domestic battery, theft, violating probation, and driving with a revoked or suspended license. What a guy!

And hey, here’s a reminder just for you, Bourque.
