Matthew Falkner was drunk and hungry, so he stopped by a local Palm City Taco Bell to fill himself up.
Normal, right? Nope!
For one, he was drunk driving — and that's just about the worst thing ever. For two, his car was ON FIRE!
Oh, and when a deputy asked him for his ID, he tried to give him a taco instead!!
That's when the second deputed reminded Matthew that the request wasn't for him to pass a taco, and everyone in a 100 ft. radius caught on to the smell of booze. Matthew then tried AGAIN to give the cops a taco.
The manager at said Taco Bell called the cops when a pick-up truck was spotted in front of the drive-thru lane, with what appeared to be the driver sleeping behind the wheel. Oh, and his foot was on the accelerator, revving the engine and pouring smoke out of the vehicle!
When the fuzz showed up, the 30 year old looked to be passed out or snoozing, so one of the officers then lifted his foot off the gas pedal and turned off the engine — we like to imagine that they did this delicately, as to not wake the sleeping motorist.
JK, we hope this woke him RIGHT UP!!
After the taco negotiations ensued, Matthew was told to get out of his car — and that's when deputies noticed the pick-up's engine was actually on fire!
Matthew's BAC was 0.227 and 0.225 — nearly three times the legal limit of 0.08, even though he claimed he only had one beer. Needless to say, he was arrested.
But what about the taco? Did he ever get to eat it??
We hope not!
