Delaware Woman Accused of Drunkenly Visiting McDonald's Drive-Thru, Spitting at Police

Dover police officers responded to the McDonald's on Forrest Avenue early Saturday morning after employees say a woman appeared to be intoxicated in the drive-thru

A Delaware woman is accused of drunkenly visiting a McDonald's drive-thru and then trying to fight police officers who responded to the scene.

Dana Courtenay was arrested on charges including resisting arrest with force and driving under the influence, Dover police said in a news release.

Dover police spokesman Master Cpl. Mark Hoffman says McDonald's staff at the Forrest Avenue location called authorities at about 3 a.m. Saturday to report that Courtenay was cursing at employees.

Hoffman says Courtenay then drove off from the scene when officers arrived and activated their emergency equipment. Police say officers attempted to stop Courtenay as she continued to flee, ultimately returning to the drive-thru. Police say that's when Courtenay left her car and proceeded to scream and curse at officers while attempting to spit on and fight them.

Courtenay refused all sobriety tests, but was exhibiting clear signs of alcohol intoxication, police said. Officers later drew her blood after obtaining a search warrant, police said.

She has since posted bail and been released. It's unclear if she has an attorney who could comment on her behalf.
