Police: Hixson man charged with DUI for sleeping in Athens drive-thru
ATHENS, TN. (WRCB) -- Athens police say a Hixson man was allegedly drunk when he was found sleeping behind the wheel in a drive-thru last week.
It happened Friday morning, just before 4:00 at McDonald's on Congress Parkway.
The police report says Officer Don Nation found 21-year-old Brantley Smith asleep in his Dodge Durango while sitting in the drive-thru.
Car horns didn't wake Smith, but Officer Nation was able to put the SUV in park, and out of the way.
The report says after failing a field sobriety test, Smith was placed under arrest and taken to the McMinn County jail.
Smith is charged with driving under the influence.
