Offbeat | Man cited in US for eating cheeseburger while driving

A man says he was cited by police outside Atlanta for eating a cheeseburger while driving. Madison Turner tells Atlanta station WSB-TV ( he ordered a double quarter-pounder with cheese from a McDonald’s shortly before he was pulled over last week.
Turner says the officer told him he saw him eating the cheeseburger for 3.2 kilometers, telling the man “You can’t just go down the road eating a hamburger.”
The ticket, issued under Georgia’s distracted driving law, states in the comments section that the offense is “eating while driving.” Turner is to appear in court Feb. 3. Cobb County police spokesman Mike Bowman declined comment.
