An army lance corporal three times the drink drive limit was so drunk she tried to order fast food from a police officer who had been called to arrest her at a McDonald’s drive-thru.

Kayleigh Marie Goodall, 33, was spotted by CCTV operators ‘driving erratically all over the road’ at Catterick Garrison in Yorkshire.

She pulled into the chain’s drive-thru after failing to notice it was closed and cordoned off.

But when officers caught up with her shortly after midnight on May 15, she tried to order food from them through her car window, York Magistrates Court was told.

Kathryn Reeve, prosecuting, said: ‘She asked to order food from the police officer before being removed from the car.’

A breath test gave a reading of 116 micrograms of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath, more than three times the legal limit of 35.

Goodall, of Warsop, had been out drinking in Richmond, North Yorkshire, with friends and continued boozing when she returned to her camp at Catterick Garrison.

The court heard she then decided to drive to the McDonald’s which is less than half a mile from her base in the military town.

Goodall, who has been in the Army for at least 10 years, pleaded guilty to drink driving.

She was banned from driving for 27 months and given a 12-month community order with 100 hours.

She was also ordered to pay £85 prosecution costs and a £95 statutory surcharge.

In mitigation, duty solicitor Harry Bayman said a driving ban would mean she would not be able to continue her specialist driving and communication role in the Army.

She will also face a military disciplinary hearing.
