MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minnesota Vikings fullback Jerome Felton was staggering and had trouble maintaining his balance when he was arrested for a DWI at a drive-thru, according to new details released by the Hennepin County Attorney’s office.

Authorities say they received a report of an intoxicated driver in the drive-thru lane around 3 a.m. on June 2, 2012 at the McDonald’s on 598 Prairie Center Drive in Eden Prairie.

When officers approached the vehicle, they observed Felton in the driver side seat talking on a telephone. Officers said his speech was “extremely slurred and mumbling” as he talked on the telephone. The odor of consumed alcohol was also coming from the open driver’s window.

When officers asked for Felton’s driver’s license, Felton attempted to give them his license, but it fell out of his hand and onto the ground.

After conducting field sobriety tests, Felton was arrested for second-degree driving while intoxicated with an aggravating factor of refusal to take an alcohol breath test and third-degree DWI with an aggravating factor of one prior DWI conviction within 10 years. He was also accused of careless driving.

Felton was booked into the Hennepin County Jail.
