I just don't get why so many college athletes are so dumb so often...I mean I guess I know why - because they fell untouchable when they get to the next level, but you have to have some brains at some point...Whatever, this stuff just gets old after a while.

"Both males were totally asleep and oblivious to anything going on around them," one of the officers stated in the report.

The police report indicates that the officers awakened Seales and Offray by knocking on the car windows. Seales and Offray "seemed very lethargic and confused" and "their eyes were red and watery with a glassy appearance," the report states.

Not exactly a good ad for Whataburger's drive through staff. Baked or not, how slow do you have to be to have your customers passing out while they wait for their food?

Keys in the ignition and the car was still running, isn't that a DUI in many states?  I believe it is here in Michigan, even if the keys are in the ignition and the it isn't running.

Sounds like they are going to get lucky.

vehicle running on a roadway accessible to the public.   case law says even if it's parked on the road or obstructing the road it can be charged, assuming you have the 'driver' now passed out in the driver's seat.   there are circumstances where the driver isn't even in the vehicle and they can/will charge it.

it sounds like they are catching a huge break, when they probably shouldn't be....either they were so inebriated that they actually passed out, or were stoned in addition to being drunk, enough that they fell asleep in a running car at a drive-thru. 

I mean....the car didn't drive itself there and I doubt they imbibed that much of either substance post-ordering, so clearly that car was in motion on a public street not long before with those guys at the helm.

The college kid in me (I'm 47, but there is still a leetle bit of that guy left) wants to laugh at the predicament as knuckleheaded college age stuff, but the Dad in me thinks 'what if' I was driving the other way on the same street with my son in the car and they pass out/fall asleep before they get to the restaurant, or just drift across the line. Not funny anymore.

I'm not being holier than thou or judgemental, there were plenty of times we 'stole' a housemate/roomates car late at night to journey to White Castle in all manner of altered states, which I now regret and I thank my lucky stars we never had an accident or hurt someone. If we had been caught, a public intoxication ticket would not likely have been serious enough to get my head straightended out, but a DUI likely would have.

Offray, a backup cornerback, will have to pay an additional fine for hampering the investigation by attempting to use his friend's name at the jail before quickly admitting his real identity -- and thus dodging a felony.

Wow, there's a friend you want to have in Offray. Anything more serious and he's probably throwing Mike Gundy under the bus. Actually, he should have tried that here just to see how well it would go over. Go big or go home in these situations.

I lived in the city where Whataburger had its world HQ, and I can say this having gone through their drive thru many times after having a few too many...they're so damn good, anyone who falls asleep in the drive thru line must not be very hungry to begin with.
