MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) — An Alabama man is accused of eating while driving in Atlanta's suburbs.

Madison Turner tells WSB-TV that he ordered a double quarter-pounder with cheese from a McDonald's shortly before being pulled over last week in the Marietta area.

Turner says the officer told him that he observed him eating the cheeseburger for two miles, 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 supposed to appear in court Feb. 3.

Cobb County police spokesman Mike Bowman declined comment. In an email to The Associated Press early Tuesday, Bowman said the department will decline any interviews about the case.
