A Schuylkill County man was recently found passed out drunk in a local Burger King drive-thru.

According to State Police in Schuylkill Haven, the incident happened back on Nov. 19 at about 10:45 p.m. That’s when troopers were called to the BK near the Cressona Mall in North Manheim Township.

When police arrived on the scene, they found 27-year-old Christopher Miller, of Orwigsburg, passed out behind the wheel of his Chevrolet Avalanche.

Police tried for several minutes to wake Miller up out of his sleep. That’s when they learned he was drunk.

Miller was taken to a local hospital for a blood test and then released.

It seems the Cressona Mall area is becoming the place to pass out drunk in your vehicle lately.

Back on Nov. 10, State Police responded to a report of a man hanging out of the trunk of his vehicle in the parking lot near the Giant supermarket.

When police arrived at that scene, 27-year-old Jeffrey Roberts, also from Orwigsburg, had moved to the front seat of his car, started up the engine and passed out.

It also took police several minutes then to wake up Roberts.
