Mentor Police arrested a woman Tuesday night for impaired driving after she blocked traffic at a Wendy's drive-thru for nearly 30 minutes.
An employee at Wendy's called police because the vehicle driven by Euclid resident Kim M. Oriold was blocking other drivers trying to exit the drive-thru. When police arrived, they found several pills in the 54-year-old woman's car, including oxycodone and tramadol.
"She was obviously impaired," Mentor Police Lt. Tim Allen said. "She had trouble keeping her eyes open."
Oriold was driving under suspension at the time. She also refused blood and urine tests.
Oriold was arraigned Wednesday by Judge John Trebets in Mentor Municipal Court on intoxicated driving, possession of dangerous drugs and driving under suspension charges. She posted her bond of 10 percent of $27,500.
Oriold's pre-trial hearing begins on Nov. 15.
