Walter Dixon Charged With DUI After Falling Asleep In McDonald's Drive-Thru

A Tennessee man was arrested early Sunday after he allegedly fell asleep in the drive-thru of the Rock 'N Roll McDonald's in downtown Chicago.

Walter Dixon, 31, was allegedly drunk when he pulled into the McDonald's drive-thru at 600 N. Clark St. in the city's River North neighborhood around 6:13 a.m. on New Year's Day, Fox Chicago reports.

When police arrived to check on the driver, they found open containers of alcohol in his black Volvo SUV. When they asked Dixon whether he needed medical attention or an ambulance, he reportedly declined but added that he "just wanted another McDonald's sandwich," according to the Chicago Tribune.

Dixon took a Breathalyzer test and police found his blood-alcohol content to be .207, far above the legal limit of .08, the Tribune reports.

Dixon was charged with driving under the influence, driving on a revoked license and attempting to mislead officers about his identity, according to Fox.
