SPOKANE, Wash. -- Authorities arrested a driver early Friday morning after he was found passed out and intoxicated in a fast food drive thru.

Deputies were called to the Jack in the Box on N. Pines for a report of a car blocking the drive-thru.

When they contacted the driver, he was still parked with the engine running at the drive thru menu.

Authorities said Johnathan E. Meyers had poor balance, slow movements, slurred speech, red glassy eyes and he smelled of alcohol.

Deputies gave Meyers a sobriety evaluation and arrested him for Driving While Intoxicated.


Officials said Meyers driving privileges were suspended in the 1st degree and had four prior DUI convictions. He was also required to have an ignition Interlock device in his car which he did not have.

Meyers was transported and booked in the Spokane County Jail for Felony DUI due to his past convictions and Misdemeanors for Driving While License Suspended 1st Degree and Ignition Interlock Violation.

Officials also obtained a search warrant for a blood draw and a sample was sent to the lab for testing.
