Reps from multiple law enforcement agencies tell TMZ … it is HIGHLY unlikely for Floyd to be charged with a crime …. with one person telling us, “Try to find a case in recent history where a person was prosecuted for destroying ONE bill. “

An official spokesperson for the Secret Service — the agency that enforces the money burning law — had no comment. Ditto for the United State’s Attorney’s Office.

It’s bad enough that Floyd is burning money when the economy is in the crapper … but what the hell is the point of the law if it’s not enforced?

So, we gotta ask …
