May I Take Your Order Please?

A California Highway Patrol officer was in the parking lot of his station in Arcata when he watched a car drive in. The driver forced his way over a concrete barrier, then tried to back up, spinning the wheels. The driver finally got out and tried to order food from the officer. The trooper asked the driver if he knew where he was. Sure, man: at a food store in McKinleyville (the next town up). The officer did a field sobriety test on Jason Andrew Sabedra, 26, and arrested him for drunk driving, and violating his probation and parole for being drunk in public. (RC/Eureka Times-Standard) ...How drunk was he? So drunk that a seven-pointed star looked like a 7-Eleven sign.
