Arrested for DUI While Sleeping
Posted on Sep 20, 2013
A Nebraska man was arrested for DUI after police found him snoozing in his car. According to a news article, the man had been drinking at a bar, and when the bartender asked for his car keys, he willingly handed them over. He kept a key that allowed him to unlock his car door, but wouldn't start the car (apparently common on older model cars). He climbed into his car and fell asleep. Police mistook the key as an ignition key, and arrested him on the spot. Prosecutors later reviewed the case and decided NOT to file drunk driving charges against the man.
