Beaverton, OR – A 23-year-old Oregon woman was busted by police for drunk driving when she drove through a Taco Bell drive-thru and poured alcohol into the mouth of the worker while a county sheriff’s sergeant was behind her in line.
The police posted the details to its Facebook page at July 21 and it has generated thousand of comments and shares.
The incident started when a sergeant saw Elianna Aguilar-Aguilar reach out of her car window and pour a bottle of cognac into the mouth of the Taco Bell employee, according to Washington County Sheriff’s Office Spokesman Deputy Brian van Kleef.
The sergeant followed Aguilar-Aguilar out of the Taco Bell parking lot and then pulled her over.
“We talked to the employee after, and he said most of it was spilled on him and that he actually didn’t consume the Hennessy,” Deputy van Kleef said, according to The Oregonian.
Aguilar-Aguilar and the Taco Bell employee didn’t know each other.
Aguilar-Aguilar said she was drinking alcohol and had a bottle of Hennessy in her car. She also said she had been smoking marijuana, according to KOIN.
She was subsequently arrested for driving under the influence.
She had a blood alcohol content of 0.12% while at the jail, according to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office. The legal limit in the state of Oregon is .08, according to The Oregonian.
According to The Oregonian, Aguilar-Aguilar was released as of July 23.
The sheriff’s office called it the “weirdest DUII arrest of the weekend,” on Facebook.
“While some of these stories may draw a smile, all of them put the public at risk and all of them are avoidable. Thankfully no one was seriously hurt or killed!,” the sheriff’s office posted on Twitter on Sunday.
