Don't love it while behind the wheel, kids.
A driver recently spotted swerving his car erratically on Greeley Street in Stillwater wasn't drunk, high, or on bath salts. But he was under the influence -- of Ronald McDonald.

-- Hamburglar lives! Bag of McDonald's swiped from unsuspecting customer
-- Vikings' Jerome Felton, arrested for DWI in McDonald's drive-thru, was lovin' it too much

After an officer watched a truck cross the centerline, a 19-year-old Oakdale man told police he was all over the road because he was preoccupied chowing McDonald's.

Stillwater Patch notes that "police did not notice any signs of impairment," so they gave the driver a warning and let him be on his way.

With one offense under his belt, we have to wonder -- a couple more, and maybe the guy should have to get "BIG MAC" plates?

WHY WASNT HE ARRESTED/TICKETED FOR RECKLESS DRIVING?! Crossing the center line due to inattentiveness is pretty serious.  They can ticket you for using your phone while driving, but give you a pass for eating and swerving?


OK, this has nothing to do with this story, BUT, While watching the weather this morning, I heard you all had 16 inches of snow yesterday. As a former resident of St.Paul, my hear goes out to you. I live in a place where it is 70 now and I haven't heard the phrase "wind chill" used in a weather report in years.

Anyway, glad I'm not there.

Oh, so this kid was just an irresponsible asshole behind the wheel? Nothing about that puts others in danger. Nope.
