COBB COUNTY, Ga. -- A Cobb County officer ticketed a man for eating a cheeseburger while driving.
Madison Turner was chomping down on his quarter-pounder with cheese when a police officer ticketed him for eating while driving.
"The officer said to me that I wasn't speeding or driving erratically," Turner said.
Attorney Tom Salata said he's never seen anything like it. He says there's usually a driving offense involved.
The law is fairly broad. It's illegal to do anything that would distract "from the safe operation of such vehicle."
"I have pulled someone over before for failing to maintain their lane, it was a female who was eating a bowl of cereal heading to work," said Sgt. Stephanie Stallings of the Georgia State Patrol.
Drivers we talked to seemed to understand the danger, but not the ticket. Turner wants to hear what a judge has to say.
