Woman arrested on DUI after demanding free food at drive-through, deputies say

NEW PORT RICHEY — Though she was drunk and apparently on medication, deputies say Kimberly Jean Womack managed to articulate a few things when she pulled up to the McDonald's drive-through window at 6 a.m. Sunday.

First, that she wanted two Big Macs, and she wanted them for free.

She justified her demand saying she did not like the burgers she had when she was there before, a Pasco sheriff's report states. When an employee told her Big Macs weren't an option because it was breakfast time, she switched her order to Egg McMuffins — still for free.

The drive-through line was growing. Employees told Womack to leave, but she refused.

Deputies were called to the restaurant at 7226 State Road 54. Womack tested at 0.108 percent blood-alcohol level and told deputies she had taken Klonopin, an antianxiety medication used to treat seizure disorders.

Womack, of 7932 Putnam Circle, was arrested on a charge of driving under the influence. She was booked into the Land O'Lakes jail and released later that day on her own recognizance.
