Man found passed out in Hardee's drive-through

-- Police arrested a Charleston man after he passed out in front of a South Charleston fast food restaurant's drive-through window.

South Charleston Patrolman N.W. Harden was dispatched to Hardee's restaurant on MacCorkle Avenue Thursday after employees noticed a man who appeared to be passed out behind the wheel of his Buick LeSabre in the drive-through, according to a complaint filed in Kanawha Magistrate Court.

The man, William Christopher Meadows, 49, of Sissonville Drive, had been passed out for about 10 minutes, witnesses told police. The Buick was in drive, Meadows' foot was on the brake, and Meadows had the money for the food in his hand, according to police.

Harden was able to wake Meadows and while speaking to him noticed the odor of alcohol on him, the complaint stated. Officers had Meadows step out of the car and perform sobriety tests, which he failed, according to police.

Meadows was placed under arrest and taken to South Charleston Police headquarters, where he was searched. Patrolman Parsons found a small bag of marijuana and a "one hitter" filled with marijuana, the complaint stated.

Meadows was charged with driving under the influence and possession of marijuana.

I'd think the first sobriety test he failed was falling asleep in the drive thru! That's pretty choice.
