NORTH FORSYTH — One fast-food eatery north of Cumming advertises its late-night hours, but owners probably didn’t think that translated to customers sleeping over.

According to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s report, a 52-year-old Cumming man was recently arrested for driving under the influence of drugs after he passed out in his vehicle while waiting in the Taco Bell drive -thru.

According to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office incident report, a deputy was dispatched to the restaurant on Keith Bridge Road, at Exit 17 off Ga. 400, for a possible medical call about 10:30 p.m.

When the man was awakened, he reportedly “seemed confused and was sweating heavily,” telling deputies he thought it was Thursday.

“He also advised he believed he put his daughter on the bus this morning,” the report said.

It was thought that he was under the influence of synthetic narcotics.
