The Hernando County Sheriff’s Office says employees spotted Francisco passed out in the bank’s drive-up lane. After the workers banged on his car for some time, deputies say Francisco finally woke up and tried to order a burrito. When the branch manager told him it wasn’t a Taco Bell, he reportedly drove to the front parking lot.

Deputies say they found Francisco in the driver’s seat with his car running. He was arrested after failing a field sobriety test.

Francisco was freed Thursday on $500 bail. Jail records didn’t list an attorney.
