Taco Bell Crime of the Week!
Now with new nifty logo!
We've had a couple of DUIs while driving through Taco Bell drive-thrus before, but I don't think we've ever had a combined DUI AND someone trying to order at the drive-thru window sans car.
From Kingsport, Tennessee
, a place so ass-backwards that a reporter for the hometown daily actually did a blog post recently titled "How to Search with Google":
Kingsport police made arrests at a fast food restaurant on Tuesday after a driver allegedly passed out behind the wheel in the drive-thru -- then a passenger exited and walked up to the pick-up window, causing a "disturbance."
According to arrest reports, at about 11:30 p.m. police responded to a "possible DUI" at Taco Bell in Allandale, 100 Charles E. Brooks Jr. Way. Two officers responded to find a Dodge Stratus in the drive-thru with the engine running, but the driver "passed out."
Police say the vehicle contained "several open beer cases." When the driver was awakened and asked for her license she opened her pocketbook, with one officer allegedly seeing, "several pill bottles," inside.
While speaking with the woman, one of her passengers exited the vehicle, according to police, then, "walked to the food pick up window and began to cause a disturbance."
