Man dies after ride with cop

Mcdonalds A drifter named Anibal Ocasio flagged down a police officer near Indianapolis on Sunday night. Because it was freezing outside and Ocasio wasn't wearing warm clothes, the cop told Ocasio to get in his cruiser to warm up.

The officer then dropped off Ocasio at a nearby McDonald's, where his body was discovered the next morning by a garbage hauler. He died of natural causes.

The Indy Star reports that the cop wasn't able to drive Ocasio where he wanted to go because it was out of the cop's district, so he figured McDonald's would be the next best thing. The officer, a volunteer reserve Hamilton County deputy, did nothing wrong but feels bad about what happened, his bosses say.

Said department spokeswoman Vicky Dunbar: "We're not a taxi service."
