BOCA RATON, FL ( (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Delray Beach man allegedly fell asleep in his car while in the Wendy’s drive-thru at 865 North Federal Highway late Monday night.

According to a police report reviewed by, Steven Wulf told officers — who apparently had to work quite diligently to wake him up — that he had consumed three rum and coke’s at O’Brien’s before the Wendy’s incident.

From the police report: “The officer knocked on the window (of Wulf’s vehicle) for about two minutes while telling (Wulf) to roll the window down, and he continued to fumble with the gear shift and the air conditioner before rolling the window down. Wulf finally unlocked the door and exited the vehicle, stumbling out. When Wulf was asked if he knew what day it was, he swayed back and forth to keep balance and had a blank look on his face. Wulf could not advise what day it was or where he was.”

Also wrote the investigating officer: “I then spoke to a witness who stated he was in Wendy’s drive-thru line behind Wulf and he noticed he did not move, so he got out of his vehicle and went inside to tell the staff, but they did not do anything so he called the police. The witness stated he banged on the window several times, but Wulf never responded to the man’s attempts.”

“Based on my observations and witness statements, it was determined that Wulf might have been under the influence of a controlled substance or alcohol, so I began my DUI investigation…Wulf advised that he had just come from O’Brien’s to have drinks with some friends. He stated he had about three rum and cokes, ‘normal size drinks.’ Wulf stated he had taken his nephew to play basketball earlier in the day and hasn’t been sleeping well since he started a new job, so he was tired and fell asleep. While speaking to Wulf, I could smell the odor of alcohol emanating from his breath, and he was slurring his words.”

Wulf refused a breath alcohol test, according to the arrest report. He was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail at 2:29 a.m. Tuesday and later released on his own recognizance. Wulf lives in the 1000 block of NW 4th Avenue in Boca Raton. A court date is pending.
