RIVERVIEW — A 37-year-old Trenton man who fell asleep in a fast-food drive-through lane the evening of Sept. 18, before waking up and drunkenly resuming driving on southbound Fort Street, was pulled over and charged with operating while intoxicated.
The driver initially claimed to be taking allergy medication, but eventually admitted to drinking beer. He smelled of intoxicants, had bloodshot eyes, was lethargic and slurred his words.
He failed multiple standardized field sobriety tests. A preliminary breath test was administered, and the man had a blood-alcohol content of 0.28, three-and-a-half times the 0.08 limit for legally drunk in Michigan.
His vehicle was impounded and towed, and he was taken to the police station, where he was booked and held.
