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.

    If a team hopes to hang around the pennant race, they better have an ace. A stopper. A pitcher they can count on every fifth day to stop the bleeding, keep a winning streak going or flat-out win a game that a team flat-out needs to win.

  3. GOP senators blink on a big chance to repeal 'Obamacare'


    WASHINGTON — After seven years of emphatic campaign promises, Senate Republicans demonstrated Wednesday they don't have the stomach to repeal "Obamacare" when it really counts, as the Senate voted 55-45 to reject legislation undoing major portions of Barack Obama's law without replacing it.
