OREM, Utah (AP) — Police had an easy time catching a man suspected of driving under the influence. He was waiting for them in his car — where they said he was passed out in the driver’s seat in the drive-thru at a fast food restaurant.

According to police, another customer found the Houston man unconscious at the drive-thru around 3 a.m. Thursday. The other customer took the keys out of the ignition and called police, who arrested the man on suspicion of driving under the influence.
