Greensburg man charged with drunk driving in McDonald's drive-thru
A Greensburg man allegedly drove to a McDonald's drive-thru while drunk with a 5-year-old boy in the back seat of his sport utility vehicle, according to South Greensburg police.
A McDonald's employee called police Sept. 3 because Christian M. Allen, 54, was acting strangely, police said.
Allen was slurring his speech, could not remember his order and was hitting on employees, according to an affidavit of probable cause.
When police arrived, Allen denied drinking until he was given a breath test that came back positive, police said.
The child was turned over to a family member, and Allen was arrested.
He agreed to a blood test, which showed a blood-alcohol level of .221, more than twice the legal limit, police said.
South Greensburg police charged Allen on Tuesday with driving under the influence of alcohol and endangering the welfare of children.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Nov. 14 before District Judge Anthony Bompiani.
