HARRISBURG, Pa., June 10 (UPI) -- Police in Pennsylvania said a man arrested for drunken driving was seen speeding through a police parking lot before parking in a police-only spot for a nap.

Chief Dennis McMaster said an officer in the East Pennsboro Township police parking lot saw Michael Wagner, of Mechanicsburg, speed through the lot at about 10:32 p.m. Sunday before parking between two cruisers in a spot marked for police vehicles only, the Harrisburg (Pa.) Patriot-News reported Wednesday.

McMaster said the officer watched Wagner switch off his headlights, lean his seat back and close his eyes in an apparent attempt to sleep. The officer approached the car, smelled alcohol on Wagner and spotted an empty vodka bottle on the floor of his car.

Wagner, 37, who was found to have a blood alcohol level of 0.112 percent, was charged with driving under the influence. He was also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia after the officer found a pipe that allegedly contained traces of marijuana.
