Silly burger drives thru Mcdon­ald’s shopfront

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

A McDON­ALD’S cus­tomer was in jail last night after mak­ing his own drive-thru — by smash­ing his CAR through a restau­rant’s glass doors.

Hun­gry Peter An­drews, 41, flew into a McFury when he was re­fused ser­vice at the burger bar late at night.

A court heard drunken An­drews told McDon­alds staff: “You’d bet­ter move your­self, I’m coming in.

“Even if I’ve got to ram these doors down, I’m coming in. I’m get­ting served whether you like it or not.”

An­drews then re­peat­edly re­versed at full speed into the busy restau­rant, send­ing staff and cus­tomers div­ing for cover from glass and ma­sonry.

Po­lice were called and An­drews was found to be well over the drink-drive limit.

The restau­rant in Port Tal­bot, South Wales, suf­fered £17,500 in dam­age and trade when it had to close for four days for re­pairs.

Swansea Crown Court heard builder An­drews had drunk up to eight pints of lager at the fu­neral of a close friend on the night of the raid.

An­drews, of Port Tal­bot,was jailed for eight months after ad­mit­ting dan­ger­ous driv­ing and drink driv­ing.

He has now been banned from all the UK’s 1,250 McDon­ald’s.
