An Army Lance corporal who was three times that drunk was so drunk she tried to order fast food from a police officer called to arrest her at a McDonald’s drive-thru.
Kayleigh Marie Goodall, 33, was spotted by cameramen ‘driving the road erratically’ at Catterick Garrison in Yorkshire.
She drove into the chain’s drive-thru after failing to notice that it was closed and cordoned off.
But when officers caught up with her shortly after midnight on May 15, she tried to order food from them through her car window, the York Magistrates Court was told.

Kathryn Reeve, prosecutor, said, “She asked to order food from the police officer before being taken out of the car.”
A breath test gave a reading of 116 micrograms of alcohol in 100 milliliters of breath, more than three times the legal limit of 35.
Goodall, from Warsop, had been drinking with friends in Richmond, North Yorkshire, and continued drinking when she returned to her camp in Catterick Garrison.
The court heard that she then decided to drive to McDonald’s, less than half a mile from her base in the military town.

Goodall, who has been in the military for at least 10 years, pleaded guilty to drink-driving.
She was given a 27-month driving ban and 12 months’ community service with 100 hours.
She was also ordered to pay £85 in prosecution costs and a statutory charge of £95.
As a mitigating circumstance, solicitor Harry Bayman on duty said a driving ban would mean she would be unable to continue her specialist driving and communications role in the military.
She will also face a military disciplinary hearing.
