The Mayor of the Kentucky town of Shively was arrested for driving under the influence on Tuesday night, having reportedly fallen asleep at the drive through of a burger franchise.
Mayor Beverly Chester-Burton was the subject of a call for Louisville Metro Police, after they recieved a report that a car had crashed into a pole at around 11 PM.
According to the Courier Journal, the vehicle was a silver Cadillac, belonging to Chester-Burton.
Locals claimed Chester-Burton had fallen asleep at a local White Castle drive through, and was startled when someone honked their horn to wake her up.
“At some point (Chester-Burton) struck the rear of a truck which was pushed into the rear of another vehicle,” the citation read. “She then exited the parking lot striking the pole.”
While admitting to police that she had had two apple martinis, she could not correctly recount the time in which she consumed them.
A Standardized Field Sobriety Test was conducted and the mayor failed to keep her head straight and walk in a straight line during the test.
Chester-Burton was arrested 13 minutes after officers arrived and booked at Louisville Metro Corrections, where she was released Wednesday. Her arraignment is set for Friday afternoon.
