Taco Bell Crime of the Week, Part I

A weekly series in which we scan police blotters across the world to find the craziest crime occurring at an outpost of Orange County's most infamous fast-food chain...

From West Virginia:

A late night trip to get some fast food from Taco Bell in the Kanawha City area of Charleston, W.Va., landed a Boone County man behind bars.

State troopers say Jonathan Ball was waiting in the drive-thru lane. When the vehicles ahead of Ball moved up, he sat still.

A trooper went to check on him and said he discovered Ball asleep at the wheel with a strong smell of alcohol coming from the car.

After Ball woke up, troopers say he failed a sobriety test and was arrested.
