Western NY man found asleep at wheel of car at fast-food drive-thru charged with DWI

You want a wake-up call with that?

State police say troopers were called to a western New York McDonald's last weekend for a report of a man asleep behind the wheel of a car in the drive-thru lane.

When troopers arrived at the fast-food restaurant in the Erie County town of Newstead at about 2 a.m. Saturday, they found the 32-year-old driver sleeping at the wheel of his car with the engine running.

The troopers woke him up and gave him sobriety tests, which he failed. Police say he was charged with driving while intoxicated for having a blood-alcohol content of 0.14 percent, nearly twice the legal limit of 0.08 percent.

Troopers say the man lives in Newstead, a rural town 20 miles east of Buffalo.
