A pair of officers watched Tuesday from inside a police car in line at the McDonald's drive-thru when 26-year-old Jesse Fields, the restaurant's manager, walked in front of their car, WTVQ reported. Authorities said Fields handed what appeared to be a pill to a man on a bicycle, identified as Derrick Chadwell, 36.
"I was like, is this real? They did a transaction right in front of them," Assistant Police Chief Patrick Robinson told WYMT. "It was right in front of their vehicle, there weren't any other vehicles in front of them."
