Pasco County driver passed out at Burger King with kids in minivan, authorities say

HUDSON — A 27-year-old woman was arrested after authorities say she passed out in a Burger King drive-through with three small children in her vehicle.

April Anne Musson was in a minivan outside the restaurant at 14139 U.S. 19 about 10 p.m. Tuesday when an employee noticed she kept falling asleep behind the wheel, according to a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report. Three children — ages 1, 3 and 5 — were inside the Chrysler Voyager with her.

A deputy said Musson appeared intoxicated and was unable to perform field sobriety tests.

While arresting her on charges of DUI and child abuse, he found a small bag containing marijuana and a tablet of oxycodone, the report said. Musson, 15224 Sheila Ann Drive, was also charged with possession of those drugs and remained Thursday at the Land O'Lakes jail in lieu of $3,700 bail.
