The LCSO followed the above subject after she struck his vehicle twice in the McDonald’s drive through. LCSO stopped the vehicle on KY-32 after seeing no license plate on the vehicle.

The LCSO then asked the subject to exit the vehicle in which she did. As she was exiting her vehicle, she almost fell over trying to maintain her balance. Her speech was very slurred as well. Then the LCSO positioned subject in a safe spot to perform standardized field sobriety tests.
