Wanted Florida man arrested after passing out drunk in McDonald’s drive-thru, deputies say
A wanted Florida man was arrested on Friday after passing out drunk while waiting in line at a McDonald’s and causing a car backup, authorities said.
Luis Salinas, 35, had a warrant for his arrest in connection with the sexual assault of a child, the Highlands County Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post.

Deputies said ‘it was a pretty good surprise’ when they found out it was Salinas who was ‘conquering and blocking people from their Big Macs at Avon Park Mickey D’s’.
Despite the other patrons shouting at Salinas, he remained asleep until the deputies opened his door and allegedly attacked them.
“Unlike his victim, our deputies can fight back,” the sheriff’s statement read.
During the fight, Salinas “slightly injured” a deputy before being taken into custody, according to the authorities.
Salinas, who deputies said had a blood alcohol level of .179, was jailed on the felony warrant and additional assault and battery charges against a law enforcement officer, DUI, driving with a suspended license and resisting arrest.

Following Salinas’ arrest, deputies had a message for those wanted by law enforcement.
“Pro tip: If you have a warrant — especially for a charge that could get you a life sentence — you probably shouldn’t drink and drive,” the sheriff’s office said. “You absolutely shouldn’t drink and drive and pass out in the drive-thru lane at McDonald’s.”
