An alleged drunk driver was left red-faced when he received a wake-up call from police after he nodded off at the wheel at a drive-through.
The young man was craving fast food on his way home early Sunday morning after a big night out and stopped at a fast food restaurant in Preston in Melbourne’s north-east.
Police were called to the Bell Street venue following reports a man driving a Ford Ranger had fallen asleep at the wheel while placing his breakfast order.
