BOCA RATON, FL ( — Boca Raton resident Matthew Farrell only said, “lawyer, lawyer, lawyer,” when Delray Beach Police found him asleep in the driver’s seat of his Toyota Scion near — but not in — a parking spot 1001 South Federal Highway in Delray Beach.

Farrell, according to police, knew he wasn’t supposed to be driving. His license is suspended.

“The defendant, Matthew Joseph Farrell, was found passed out while he was seated in the driver seat of a two door black Toyota Scion,” wrote an investigating officer in the police report. “The vehicle was in the middle of the parking lot and not in a designated parking spot. The defendant appeared disoriented and lost his balance walking to the Delray Beach Fire Rescue truck.”

Adds the officer:

“The defendant was read implied content for a blood draw. He began to repeat “lawyer, lawyer.” I asked him he drank alcohol and he repeated, “lawyer, lawyer.”
