NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) - A man was arrested after police found him passed out in the drive-thru of a fast food restaurant in Nashville.

Police said 37-year-old Regis Carney stopped by a Wendy's drive-thru when employees saw him passed out behind the wheel with the vehicle running and his foot on the brake.
