2 Arrested for Going Through McDonalds Drive-Thru on ATV-Towed Couch
“The two passengers from the sofa, or the couch, or whatever you want to call it, were intoxicated,” said Corporal Lorri McEachern.
Two Canadian men were arrested Thursday after they attempted to go through a snowy McDonalds drive-thru on a couch that was being pulled by an ATV, CTV News reports.
The New Brunswick men, who are 28 and 29 years old, were seen by local Miramachi police as they were riding the couch at 3:19 a.m. Thursday morning into the drive-thru. When cops attempted to pull the ATV over, the driver drove off, sofa in tow, but left the riders behind.
"When [the officer] put his lights on, of course he took off, the four-wheeler did, with the sofa still attached. But he left his two passengers from the sofa at the drive-thru," police Corporal Lorri McEachern said Friday to CTV News. "The two passengers from the sofa, or the couch, or whatever you want to call it, were intoxicated."
The ATV driver was able to evade by high-tailing it across a frozen river while pulling the furniture piece. It didn't take long for police locate the vehicle, but the driver remains at large.
"He got away, but they got the four-wheeler later on that day and seized the four-wheeler, so now they just have to locate the driver," she said.
Charges for the men have not yet been released.
