Man mistakes bank drive-thru for Taco Bell, charged with DUI

A man from Spring Hill, Florida, pulled into a drive-thru on Wednesday, Jan. 17, then fell asleep before ordering. When Francisco saw the bank manager, deputies said he tried to order a burrito.

Douglas Francisco, 28, was arrested after deputies found him in the driver's seat with the vehicle running in the bank's drive-thru lane. The manager confirmed he was the same driver. When the branch manager told him it wasn't a Taco Bell, he reportedly drove to the front parking lot.

Officers from the Hernando County Sheriff's Office arrived to find Francisco parked a short distance away in the bank's parking lot, with his motor still running. Douglas J. Francisco was in the driver's seat with the vehicle running.

According to the Hernando County Sheriff's Office, Francisco "made several statements that were differing from reality such as having his air conditioning running in the auto when the heat was on while the temperature outside was in the mid-40s", reports the Hernando Sun. Martin was able to identify Douglas as the driver he was concerned about.

The deputy reported that Francisco "made several statements that were differing with reality", and that during a field sobriety test, his movements were slow in a way that was consistent with someone on prescription narcotics.

During a search of the Hyundai, deputies said they found prescription medication that had been made out in Francisco's name, according to the Times.
