“Dude, like, can I get a Burrito Supreme?”
“No. This is a Bank of America.”
According to various online reports, a Florida man was so drug (and possibly alcohol) impaired recently that he mistook a Bank of America drive-up lane for a Taco Bell drive-thru…and attempted to order a burrito from an employee.
Police were summoned to the Tampa-area bank “in reference to a suspected impaired driver.” (Suspected?). A bank manager informed the police that a male driving a blue Hyundai had passed out at the wheel while in the bank’s drive-thru lane. The employee told police he beat on the car’s window until the driver regained consciousness, at which time the driver requested a burrito. The manager informed him that he was not, in fact, at a Taco Bell, and the man drove off. When an investigator arrived on the scene, he found Douglas Francisco, 28, at the wheel of a blue Hyundai in the bank’s parking lot.
A Hernando County Sheriff’s Office deputy reported Francisco “made several statements that were differing from reality” during police questioning. (Sounds like Nancy Pelosi!). The deputy also noted that the man exhibited a “delayed reaction to questions as well as slowed movements of his extremities consistent with someone under the influence of prescription narcotics.” Francisco was arrested after field sobriety tests “yielded strong evidence of impairment.” Strong evidence of impairment?! The man tried to order a burrito from a bank! (One wonders if he tried to withdraw cash from a Taco Bell, as well). A search of Francisco’s person yielded both Xanax and Oxycodone pills, for which he had a prescription.
Francisco was booked into the county jail on charges of driving under the influence, a misdemeanor, and released the next day after posting $500 bail. (And promising to stay away from drugs and drive-thru lanes, I hope).
“Can I get chips with that?”
