Police in south-central Pennsylvania say a drunken driver who was speeding in a police station parking lot and stopped his car between two marked cruisers so he could take a nap has been arrested. East Pennsboro police Chief Dennis McMaster says the 37-year-old Mechanicsburg man caught the attention of an officer Sunday night. He says the officer saw the man park in a space reserved for police cars, turn off his headlights, recline his seat and close his eyes.

He says when the officer approached the car to check on the man he saw an empty vodka bottle on the floor and found a pipe with traces of marijuana.

The man has been charged with driving under the influence and possessing drug paraphernalia.
