Ohio DUI suspect keeps cop waiting at drive-thru

The police report says the driver had sunglasses on and her speech was slurred


Associated Press

NORTH ROYALTON, Ohio — Police in Ohio say a woman insisted on picking up some fast food before she allowed an officer to charge her with drunken driving.

The Plain Dealer newspaper of Cleveland reports police in suburban North Royalton got a call about a car weaving and going off a road at a little after 1 a.m. earlier this month. A patrolman tracked the vehicle to the drive-thru of a Taco Bell restaurant and pulled up alongside.

The police report says the driver had sunglasses on and her speech was slurred. She was ordered to get out of the line, but first she proceeded to the second window to grab her order.

Police say the woman's blood-alcohol level tested at nearly twice the legal limit.
