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.

  3. An attempt to project what Rays will look like in 2018

    The Heater

    BALTIMORE — We know what the Rays look like this year: a team that had enough talent but too many flaws, in construction and performance, and in the next few days will be officially eliminated from a wild-card race it had a chance to win but let slip away.

    Adeiny Hechavarria, high-fiving Lucas Duda, seems likely to be brought back.
