Arkansas Man Cited For DWI For Sleeping In Fast-Food Drive-Through

A man who was a little slow in picking up his fast food has been charged with drunk driving. Police said they found Terrance Forte, 32, asleep behind the wheel in the drive-through lane at a McDonald's restaurant.

Restaurant employees called police about 12:30 a.m. Saturday after waiting 15 minutes for Forte to drive from the first window to the second window in the drive-through.

In a police report, Officer William Mahon said he found Forte asleep inside the car with the engine running and his right foot on the brake. The report said Forte offered Mahon $10 for his food order when Mahon tried to wake him.

Forte's blood alcohol level was registered at 0.19, 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.
