CHASKA, Minn. (WCCO) – Chaska Police placed a man in a detox facility recently after he was spotting sleeping in an Arby’s parking lot early one morning, according to authorities.

Police found the man at 5 a.m. on the day of the incident. Officers arrived to the scene and observed a man with nothing but boxers on who was sleeping on his stomach on the pavement. He was also covered with mosquito bites.

When questioned by police, the man couldn’t remember his birthdate. He told police he thought he was in a nearby hotel room and couldn’t figure out that he was in a parking lot in his underwear.

Police administered a breath test, and the man registered a .21 blood alcohol content. He was taken to a detox facility.

    I have a very hard time wondering why this has made wcco’s news. This sort of behavior is status quo throughout a 20 mile radius.

    makes ya wonder now _ the dude had enough sense to park in a closed business to sleep it off. He then gets tagged anyway and off to detox.
    Almost like we are encouraging them to try and make a dash home at night now, isn’t it
    I don’t drink a drop – still rather see a drunk parked than on the road even if I don’t like that either

      Come on—-Ummm…if you had read the article, it says he was found face down on the pavement in his boxer shorts. It says nothing about a vehicle of any kind. It also doesn’t say anything about him getting a DWI. He was taken to detox for his own safety because obviously sleeping in the middle of a parking lot in your underwear isn’t safe. Try reading the story next time before commenting!

    They could’ve just let me sleep it off. I wasn’t hurting anyone.

      LOL!! My guess is that it was a prank put on by some of his drinking buddies, who saw an opportunity.
