Drunk Driver Startled by Police In Whataburger Drive-thru

Posted: Updated:

ALTUS, Okla._

An Altus man was arrested early Saturday morning after he led police on a high speed chase after he was found sleeping in a Whataburger drive-thru.

Police were called to the Whataburger on North Main Street and Tamarack Road around 2:00 am after employees were told a man was asleep in his car and was blocking the drive-thru.

When police arrived they found the man asleep behind the wheel of his vehicle. When police tried to shake him awake he allegedly admitted to consuming alcohol, but before police could ask him to step out of the car, police said he stepped on the gas and pulled out of the parking lot.

Police chased the driver for nearly five miles into the town of Martha. The chase ended after the driver crashed into a tree.

No word the man's condition.
