A man was charged with driving drunk after police say he fell asleep in his car in the drive-through lane of a Taco Bell.

The Gainesville Sun reports that 25-year-old John Edward Hopwood fell asleep at the wheel of his Kia Sorento early Friday morning before he could order his tacos.

A restaurant worker told police she woke Hopwood up, and he moved his car to a parking spot to wait for food that he never ordered. An officer found him in the restaurant parking lot, woke him up and said he failed a field sobriety test. He declined to take a breath test.
