I’m not crazy about a pizza delivery driver being arrested on drug charges, but it is cool what the cops did next! The pizza guy was en route to deliver a customer their pizza when he was taken into custody by some Illinois police. Well, seeing that this large pizza sitting in the passenger seat had no means of reaching its destination, an officer delivered the pizza to the specified address.
