An Oneida man was arrested Wednesday, June 12, after allegedly passing out in the drive-thru at McDonald’s.
Jamie Crabtree, 40, of Helenwood, was charged with DUI and possession of drug paraphernalia after police discovered him unresponsive inside his vehicle in the drive-thru.
According to an arrest warrant filed by Oneida Police Department Patrolman Skylar Chambers, the incident occurred shortly after 2 a.m. Wednesday. Chambers and OPD Sgt. Brett Bond were summoned to the restaurant due to Crabtree allegedly being passed out inside his vehicle, which was still running and was sitting in the drive-thru.
As officers attempted to wake up Crabtree, Bond reached through the window and put the car into park, while taking the keys out of the ignition.
After multiple attempts, officers were able to wake up Crabtree, according to the warrant. However, he was allegedly lethargic and admitted to taking Suboxone and Xanax — which he said he was prescribed — that same night.
Chambers allegedly discovered hypodermic needles in the driver’s side floorboard and seat of the vehicle.
Crabtree allegedly failed a field sobriety test and was transported to Scott County EMS for a blood draw.
