Rushing was arrested in December 2015 when Cpl. Shelby Riggs-Hopkins spotted flakes of glaze on his car’s floorboard and thought they were pieces of crystal methamphetamine. Rushing told officers it was likely sugar from Krispy Kreme doughnuts he’d eaten, but roadside drug tests were positive for the illegal substance.
A state crime lab test cleared Rushing several weeks later, and he filed a lawsuit.
Orlando police ended up training more than 730 officers how to properly use the field-test kits.
Riggs-Hopkins was given a written reprimand for making an improper arrest.
