Havin' it your way

She'll be doing time next door to the hamburglar I guess.

Cops arrest woman after drive-through burger order

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - It was a Big N' Tasty burger and one trip to jail to go for a woman suspected of DWI in St. Paul. Police said a 26-year-old woman pulled into a McDonald's drive-thru with squad car lights flashing and sirens blaring behind her. The woman had time to eat a couple of fries before police caught up to her and arrested her on suspicion of drunken driving Sunday.

The woman said says she saw the cruiser at the McDonald's, heard an officer honking the horn and figured she was getting pulled over because her driver's license was revoked. She told the St. Paul Pioneer Press in a jail interview: "I thought they were fixing to mess with me. ... I was fixing to get something to eat."

The woman said she couldn't get out of the drive-through because cars were behind and in front of her.

She's contesting the accuracy of a breath test she took.
