A Drunk Driver Leads the Cops on a Short Chase
so that he would have enough time to finish his Big Mac…
After exiting a McDonald’s drive-thru lane, an intoxicated Ohio motorist led cops on a short chase because he “just wanted to eat his Big Mac before he stopped,” according to a police report.
Responding to a call about a reckless driver, Brunswick Police Department officers located suspect Randall Miller, 31, behind the wheel of a silver SUV that was departing McDonald’s around 1 AM on September 28.
“I initiated a traffic stop and the subject failed to stop,” noted Officer Clifford Smith, who added that he chased Miller until the motorist pulled over. Miller, who smelled of booze and was slurring his speech, apologized to Smith, saying he “was too drunk and he just wanted to eat his Big Mac before he stopped.”
Miller, whose blood alcohol content was measured at more than three times the legal limit, was arrested on several counts, including drunk driving and fleeing an officer.
Miller was arraigned last week on the charges in Medina Municipal Court.
