DUI suspect tries to order burrito in Bank of America drive-thru

A Florida man found himself at the drive-thru branch of the Bank of America instead of Taco Bell as he might have intended. Reportedly, this also led to a DUI arrest. According to an incident report, a deputy of Hernando County responded to the bank from where the call was received. The manager reported a suspected drunk driver who allegedly fell asleep while sitting in a vehicle in the drive-thru lane.

The bank manager says he knocked on the window to wake the sleeping man, and when he succeeded, the driver appeared disoriented. Supposedly, he ordered a burrito. However, when he was told that he was in the wrong drive-thru, the man apparently drove off and parked in the bank's parking lot. The officer arrived to investigate the allegations and found a 28-year-old man from Tampa sitting in the vehicle with its engine idling.

According to the arrest report, the driver's reactions appeared to be slow, and he was suspected of being impaired by narcotics. The results of field sobriety tests allegedly confirmed the deputy's suspicions. Furthermore, the officer says Oxycodone and Xanax were discovered in his possession, although the drugs were prescribed to him. The man was arrested, charged with DUI and was taken to the Hernando County jail where he was released the next day on $500 bail.

Florida drivers who find themselves in similar situations will want to retain the services of an experienced DUI defense attorney. A lawyer can scrutinize the evidence along with the procedures followed during any field sobriety tests and the arrest. A defense strategy designed to achieve the most favorable outcome can then be prepared for presentation during court proceedings.
