Kentucky mayor gets DUI after sleeping in drive-thru, crash

Shively Mayor

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Police say a Kentucky mayor has been charged with driving under the influence after she fell asleep at the wheel in a restaurant’s drive-thru line and later crashed. A Louisville Metro Police arrest citation says officers arrested Shively Mayor Beverly Chester-Burton on Tuesday. Officers were dispatched after a car crashed into a utility pole. They found the 59-year-old standing near a damaged Cadillac. The citation says witnesses alleged Chester-Burton had been asleep in a White Castle drive-thru line before she rear-ended a truck and drove away. She was jailed after failing a field sobriety test and released Wednesday. It’s unclear whether she has an attorney who can comment for her.
