Man sleeping in McDonald's drive-through cited for drunk driving


A man found asleep in his car in aMcDonald's drive-through lane has been charged with drunk driving.

Restaurant employees called police early Saturday morning after waiting 15 minutes for Terrance Forte, 32, to drive from the first window to the second window of the drive-through.

Officer William Mahon's report said he found Forte asleep with the engine running and his right foot on the brake. Forte offered Mahon $10 (euro7.4) for his food order when Mahon tried to wake him, the report said.

Forte's blood alcohol level was registered at more than twice the legal limit.

Forte was cited for his third drunk-driving charge and was later released.

A telephone number for Forte could not be found Tuesday, and it was not known if he had a lawyer.
