Last week, a Kentucky mayor was arrested after falling asleep in the drive-thru of the White Castle, where she promptly hit another car before crashing into a utility pole.
Shively Mayor Beverly Chester-Burton was charged with driving under the influence after police smelled alcohol. Witnesses also said that she was out cold inside her car and that they tried to wake her up multiple times.
When Louisville Metro Police officers arrived at the scene, Chester-Burton was standing outside her silver Cadillac. Witnesses told the police that multiple people had knocked on Chester-Burton’s car window to wake her up.
“At some point, Chester-Burton struck the rear of a truck which was pushed into the rear of another vehicle,” the citation said. “She then exited the parking lot striking the pole.”
