ROCK HILL — A Rock Hill man was charged with driving under the influence after police were called to a Burger King Thursday morning, according to a report.
When the officer arrived and approached a truck in the drive-through at the Burger King on Mt. Holly Road, Timothy Denton, 55, tried to hide two vodka bottles. Denton was unable to successfully perform field sobriety tests. He also fell over when the officer tried to put him in the back of the police car, the report stated.
A Burger King employee told the officer Denton pulled up to the drive-through microphone to order, but she couldnt understand him, so she told him to pull up to the window, according to the report. Denton then sat at the microphone for several minutes before pulling up to the window.
While finally moved the car, Denton ran into the curb, pulled up past the window, and then backed into another car. The employee went to the car and took Dentons keys away and called the police.
Denton was charged with driving under the influence, driving under suspension and open container of liquor. His bond was set at $8,000.
