A Florida man has been arrested for allegedly possessing ecstasy pills in the shape of President Donald Trump’s face.
Brendan Dolan-King, 23, reportedly had five orange tablets that resembled the president’s head.
On the back of the tablets, ‘Trump NL,’ along with six stars are seen.
Dolan-King was arrested at his Clearwater apartment on Friday after police were called to the home ‘in reference to an overdose’, according to a police report.
He then gave police permission to search his residence. During the search officers found fentanyl and the five tablets in an air vent.
Authorities later determined that Dolan-King ‘was possibly the person to provide the victim of the overdose with the heroin that he overdosed on’.

Dolan-King was subsequently charged with drug possession.
According to The Smoking Gun, Dolan-King is a Long Island native who is now serving an 18-month probation sentence following his conviction last year for possessing cocaine and marijuana.
During his arrest in February 2018, Dolan-King also had ecstasy pills, also known as MDMA, but those were in the shape of Darth Vader.
He is being held on $2,000 bond.
This isn’t the first time that the Trump-shaped ecstasy pill has made headlines.

The pills are considered to be a new breed of ‘mega-dose’ ecstasy tablets with names that also include ‘Putin’ and ‘Donkey Kong’.
Last week, New Zealand became the latest country after Britain and Australia to face an influx of the pills with a ‘double dose’ of ecstasy.
Roughly 400 kilograms of ecstasy was seized at the country’s border in 2019.
Community group, The Loop, which provides drug safety testing, tested one of the ‘double-dose’ pills and found it contains 330mg of MDMA.
This is more than five times the regular dose.
