Drunk Driver Found Asleep At Wheel With Burrito In Hand; Cops

Someone should have burri-told him not to drink and drive.

Daniel Hernandez, 36, was charged with a DUI after law enforcement in Deltona, Fla. say they found him passed out at the wheel in front of a traffic light, a half-eaten Taco Bell burrito in hand, according to the Daytona Beach News-Journal.

The witness who first spotted Hernandez called deputies at around 12:30 a.m. Monday after claiming to see a zonked Hernandez sit through several light changes without moving his vehicle, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

Deputies and paramedics beat on the doors and windows for around 10 minutes, unsuccessfully trying to wake Hernandez, before breaking the window to get to him. Hernandez allegedly also snoozed through the window-breaking, but after deputies did wake him up, he agreed to two breath tests. His blood alcohol content was measured at 0.173, then 0.177, both more than twice the legal limit of 0.08.

This isn't the first Taco Bell burrito to find itself at a crime scene. In February, another Florida man allegedly assaulted a relative by throwing a burrito at his face.
