A man from Nashville, Tennessee has been charged with a DUI after passing out in a Wendy’s drive-thru.
37-year old Regis Carney must’ve needed a late night snack while under the influence. He went to a Wendy’s where he proceeded to pass-out while he was at the window. His vehicle was still running and his foot was on the brake.
Wendy’s employees called the cops. However, when the cops arrived to the scene, they couldn’t wake Carney up. The fire department had to come to the scene to break open Carney’s window to get him out of the vehicle.
It took police officers about five minutes to wake up Carney. He wasn’t able to walk and he smelled of booze.
Police took him to the hospital to to make sure everything was okay before they charged him with a DUI. Carney’s bond was set for $15,000.
It turns out that Carney also has three prior DUI convictions that date back to 2003. That means that Carney could be facing a felony DUI conviction for this latest arrest. He could wind up spending a long time in jail, paying a lot of money in required fines and lose his license.
Many people who get arrested for a DUI struggle with alcohol dependence. However, with the help of a DUI attorney you can work with the judge to seek treatment for your problem instead of going to jail. The best way to ensure this possible outcome is to speak with a lawyer today.
