It wasn’t intoxication or distraction from using a cell phone while driving that caused a 19-year-old man to repeatedly cross the centerline on Greeley Street last week, but rather McDonald’s.
That’s right, a 19-year-old Oakdale man told police he was driving poorly because he was grubbing on some McDonald’s while driving. It’s unclear from the police report exactly what was so tasty the man couldn’t keep his eyes on the prize.
Here’s what happened, according to a Stillwater Police report:
An off-duty Bayport police officer reported a driving complaint. Stillwater police located the truck, saw the driver cross over the centerline and made a traffic stop.
The driver told police he was driving poorly because he was eating McDonald’s. Police did not notice any signs of impairment.
The man was given a verbal warning and sent on his way.
