Man Arrested For DWI At McDonald’s Drive Through

Man Arrested For DUI At McDonalds Drive Through

mcdonalds signOn his way to possibly get a Big Mac, Clifton Lee Baker was arrested for driving while intoxicated (DWI) at a McDonalds drive through on December 22, 2013. The incident occurred in Burlington, North Carolina when Baker tapped the car in front of him at the drive through lane. According to Assistant D.A. Brooks Stone, Baker attempted to flee the scene but was apprehended by a sheriffs deputy nearby. Upon taking a breathalyzer test, police found Baker’s blood alcohol content (BAC) level to be .20%, more than twice the legal limit.

Before his arrest, Bakers ex-girlfriend reported that he drove into her yard and proceeded to beat on her door with a tire iron before eventually leaving and heading to McDonalds. According to police, Baker already had his licensed revoked prior to the McDonalds incident due to another DWI charge. An Alamance County Judge originally sentenced Baker to a year in prison for injury to real property, DWI, domestic criminal trespassing and driving with a revoked license but a Superior Court appeal got Baker a suspended sentence instead. Bakers attorney argued that a suspended sentence would allow Baker to spend weekends in jail and still be able to support his daughter. Baker received 2 years probation in addition to paying a $500 court fee and will spend 23 weekends in prison.
