Man charged with DUI after ordering burrito at a bank in Florida

Landing in a confusing situation can cause many people to feel uncomfortable. When a certain level of disorientation contributes to the confusion, a person may not know the best way to handle the predicament. Unfortunately for some, this type of scenario could result in their facing charges for DUI if authorities believe drugs or alcohol have played a role in a misunderstanding.

This type of situation recently took place in Florida. Reports indicated that a man had allegedly pulled into a drive-thru at a bank and fallen asleep or otherwise became unconscious behind the wheel of his car. The bank manager reportedly attempted to wake the man by knocking on the car window, and it purportedly took several attempts before he woke. Upon awakening, the man allegedly tried to order a burrito.

The man then left the bank, but the manager had informed authorities about the incident. The driver had stopped in a parking lot near the bank, and police located him. Officers apparently had the man participate in field sobriety tests, which he reportedly did not complete in a satisfactory manner. As a result, he was taken into custody and is facing a charge for DUI. Authorities believe that he was under the influence of drugs at the time of the incident.

DUI charges of any type can have negative impacts on a person's life. The man allegedly involved in this Florida event will certainly want to ensure that he takes meaningful steps toward lessening the impacts the allegations will have on him. Obtaining information on his criminal defense options from local legal resources may help him with this endeavor.
