A Winder man with a craving for McDonald's failed to get his order after falling asleep in his vehicle at the entrance to the drive-thru lane in the early morning hours of Oct. 6.
Upon arrival at the North Broad Street restaurant, a Winder Police officer found Christian Terrell, 23, of Winder, inside a silver Mustang. The vehicle, according to the report, was running and Terrell was unresponsive.
The officer turned off Terrell's vehicle and attempted to wake him.
"Once he awoke he seemed very disoriented and kept stating his friend was inside, there was no friend located," the officer wrote in the report.
The officer noted a strong odor of alcohol on Terrell's person. According to the report, Terrell admitted having "a couple of beers" earlier in the evening.
A medical unit was called to the scene to assess Terrell's condition. Terrell refused medical treatment.
"I asked Mr. Terrell to exit the vehicle and step to the rear of his vehicle. Mr. Terrell was very unsteady, swaying from side to side and shuffling his feet as he stepped," the officer wrote.
As the officer was searching Terrell for weapons and contraband, he noticed Terrell appeared to be gripping something in his left hand. When asked to open his hand, Terrell reportedly dropped two Xanax tablets on the trunk lid. After being placed in handcuffs, Terrell allegedly admitted having five beers and taking half a Xanax.
The officer reported finding half a Xanax in plain view inside Terrell's vehicle along with several grams of methamphetamine.
Terrell was transported to Barrow Regional Medical Center for a blood and urine test before being transported to the jail. He was booked into the jail on charges of DUI, possession of methamphetamine and possession of a controlled substance.
Terrell's vehicle was towed from the scene. The drugs and urine/blood kit were placed into evidence.
