“Cocaine Bear” may have been BASED on a true story, but it’s far from an actual true story.
But you can learn that true story NOW, as long as you have Peacock. Because the documentary “Cocaine Bear: The True Story” just dropped today.
Sadly, the bear is hardly even a part of the true story. Basically, it ate the cocaine and DIED. And that’s it.
It’s more about Andrew C. Thornton the Second, a paratrooper and police officer who got involved in international drug smuggling, bailed from an airplane in Georgia with millions of dollars in coke, and died when his parachute failed.
