Michigan drunk driver arrested after trip to McDonald’s

A drunk driver was arrested at a McDonald’s in Michigan after he honked and cursed at the drive-thru window for 15 minutes in front of police.

The Bath Township Police Department (BTPD) posted on Facebook a detailed account of the drunk driver who stopped at McDonald’s after drinking at a bar early on the morning of September 19.

The McDonald’s had closed at 1am, but the driver apparently didn’t notice that there were no lights on when he pulled into the driveway.

According to the post, the man honked his horn and cussed at the drive-thru window for 15 minutes while officers in a parked police cruiser watched from 20 feet away.

Police watched as the man tried to drive off squealing his tires before going over a curb and onto the road.

The 57-year-old man from Okemos, Michigan, a suburb of Lansing, was arrested. His name will not be released until he is arraigned.

BTPD’s full post reads: ‘If you are going to get incredibly intoxicated at the bar and then drive home, we have a suggestion for you: On your way home when you inevitably stop at that Mcdonald’s for some McNuggets, a McDouble and a McFlurry, make sure the Mcdonald’s is actually open. 

‘All of the lights being off and no one around would be a clue.

‘Then, when you sit in the drive thru at the closed Mcdonald’s for 15 minutes honking your horn and cussing because no one is taking your order, make sure there isn’t a police cruiser parked 20 feet away watching you fail miserably. #McFail.’

Bath Township is located about eight miles north of East Lansing. The East Lansing Police Department poked fun at BTPD in a comment on the post, saying that its jail has McFlurries
