ELGIN, Ill., June 15 (UPI) -- Police in Illinois said a man was arrested when an officer in a McDonald's drive-through lane smelled marijuana coming from the car in front of them.

Elgin police said the officer was in the drive-through lane at about 12:30 a.m. Monday and smelled marijuana smoke coming from the vehicle in front of him, the Elgin Courier-News reported Tuesday.
