Man Charged with DUI at McDonald’s Drive-thru in Aurora

An Aurora man was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving after allegedly threatening to fight a customer in the McDonald’s drive-thru line.

Just after midnight on Monday, Aurora police were called to a home after reports that someone was playing music too loudly in a maroon Jeep. When police arrived, they found Daniel Garibay sitting in the vehicle. Police reports indicate that Garibay appeared to be drunk and that officers warned him not to drive. Officers then left the residence and believed the incident to be over.

However, about an hour later, a McDonald’s employee called police, stating that someone in a maroon Jeep was being disruptive in the drive-thru line. The same officers that had responded to the earlier call arrived at McDonalds and quickly realized that this was the same man they had earlier warned not to drive. Besides threatening to fight another customer, the restaurant manager stated that she believed Garibay to be drunk after he seemed confused and had trouble speaking when ordering.

This is not the first time a DUI arrest took place at a McDonald’s drive-thru. Less than a month ago, a man was charged with driving while intoxicated at a Delaware McDonald’s drive-thru and two months ago a man was arrested for DUI after passing out in a Kansas McDonald’s drive-thru.
