Police: Man Arrested for DUI After Falling Asleep in McDonald's Drive-Thru

The alleged incident occurred on January 19.

A Mont Clare man was arrested earlier this month after police say he fell asleep, drunk, in a McDonald’s drive-thru. 

According to court documents, on January 19 at 2 a.m., Phoenixville Police received report of a man asleep in a pickup truck at the McDonald’s on 651 Nutt Road. Upon arrival, the officer noted that the driver, Shane Yonkoske, 27, smelled like alcohol, had glassy eyes, and seemed lethargic.

Yonkoske took field sobriety testing, and was arrested for DUI and taken to Phoenixville Hospital to have blood drawn for testing.

He was charged with four counts of DUI, an additional count of careless driving, and is awaiting preliminary hearing.

Alright HARRY!!!! Yeah man, another idiotic comment. I was beginning to wonder, it had been a couple days with nothing stupid from you.... I just assumed you went out and got a life, or maybe started following the police log for a city you live in. Guess not, welcome back moron.
