Texas McDonald's Drive-Thru Nap Leads to DWI Charge for Repeat Offender Jeremy PowellSource: Facebook/Mark Herman, Harris County Constable Precinct 4

Deputies from Constable Mark Herman's Office made a drowsy discovery at a Texas McDonald's this past Thursday. During the early morning hours, lawmen responded to a call at the fast-food joint on FM 2920 where they found a driver, Jeremy Powell, asleep at the wheel in the drive-thru lane.

When roused, Powell had trouble keeping his bearings and showed signs that he had been drinking. After the deputies conducted a series of standardized field sobriety tests, they determined the man was indeed driving while intoxicated—a decision unfortunately backed by his record of a previous DWI conviction.

Constable Mark Herman released details of the arrest, stating, "Jeremy Powell was arrested and booked into the Harris County Jail, charged with Driving While Intoxicated." according to Constable Mark Herman's Precinct 4 Facebook post. As of now, Powell's bond has been set at a sobering $100.00 out of the County Court 8.

Incidents like these serve as a stark reminder of the perils that can unfold when individuals choose to disregard the law—and their safety—by getting behind the wheel after drinking. Jeremy Powell's lapse in judgement has landed him an upcoming court date and a bond that stands as a testament to his alleged return to old habits.
