Drunk Ohio Man Leads Police in Chase So He Can Finish His Big Mac


1 comment


An intoxicated Hinkley, OH man lead police on a car chase because, he later told officers, he wanted to finish his Big Mac.

At around 1 a.m. on Sept. 28, Brunskwick, OH police received a call from an alarmed pedestrian who claimed a speeding SUV nearly knocked him over.

Police then spotted a similar vehicle peeling out of a McDonald's drive-thru near Center Road and began to give chase. The driver, however, ignored the police and continued driving for some time before finally pulling over near Grafton Road.

Randall W. Miller, 31, then apparently began apologizing profusely and telling police that he just wanted to finish his Big Mac before stopping, according to the police report. He also admitted to polishing off some 10 to 15 beers that evening, and showed a blood alcohol content level of .255- three times the legal limit.

Miller now faces a whole slew of charges, including operating a vehicle while intoxicated, failure to comply, driving under suspension and no operator’s license- but at least he got his Big Mac.
