Drunk Driver Tries to Start Vehicle…While It’s Still Running
Saturday, Kennewick Police came across an obviously VERY intoxicated driver, after getting a weird call from a homeowner.
Officers responded to the 3400 block of South Jean, and found a drunken man behind the wheel of his car. It seems the driver had pulled up in front of the person's home, taken off their shoes and then just kind of dozed off.
When the homeowner came out and tried to talk to him he was initially unresponsive, then groggy, and at one point police said the man tried to start his car but it was already running. The homeowner'd had about enough of that and they called police. The driver decided he didn't want to stick around and drove off, but was located a short distance away.
He's now facing several DUI related charges. His name was not released.
