    A burger craving led to a customer's arrest after police say he nodded off at the drive-thru.

    A Greenville man was hauled off to jail Friday morning after authorities say he fell asleep at a drive-thru while ordering food from a fast-food restaurant.

    Employees at a Whataburger restaurant called police around 12:30 a.m. after a man blocked their drive-thru with his vehicle nearly an hour and appeared to be asleep, according to the Greenville Herald-Banner.
     
    A news release from the city of Greenville said the 37-year-old man was arrested for driving while intoxicated and taken to jail after police say he failed field sobriety tests.
     
    The drive-thru remained blocked until a tow truck could remove the vehicle.
     
    Greenville is about 45 miles northeast of Dallas.
