Taco Bell Crime of the Week!
An Aurora man has been charged with DUI after getting his car stuck in a West Surbuban Montgomery Taco Bell drive-thru lane.
On Nov. 28, Aaron Dawson, 27, of the 800 block of Symphony Drive, drove a blue Dodge sedan at 2:15 a.m. to the Taco Bell on the 1950 block of Douglas Road in Montgomery.
An employee at the fast food restaurant called for help because the car was stuck, according Montgomery Police Sgt. Gregory Sullivan. When police arrived on the scene, the Dodge was straddling the curb, with the front tires off the ground. The accident caused minor damage to nearby sprinklers and to Dawson's car.
Dawson failed multiple sobriety tests and had a blood-alcohol content of .10, which is over the legal limit of .08, Sullivan said.
Dawson admitted he had been drinking and said he overshot the curb because there was another car in front of him, which could not be confirmed because there were no witnesses, Sullivan said.
No alcohol was found in the car and it is unknown what Dawson had been drinking or what he intended to order at Taco Bell."I guess it's just the late night munchies," Sullivan said.
