'Grossly intoxicated' woman arrested at Burger King drive thru


A Mt. Pleasant woman is now out on bond after allegedly admitting to drinking while she was in the drive thru of a fast food restaurant Monday evening.

According to investigators, officers with the Horry County Police Department were dispatched to the Burger King located at 1568 Highway 17 in reference to a person in the drive thru who was possibly intoxicated.

Once they got there, they found 51-year-old Debra Marie Lafferty and asked her to move to the back of the vehicle she was driving, the report said.

Officers said Lafferty became very loud and belligerent as they tried to talk with her. Authorities said there were signs that Lafferty was under the influence of alcohol.

According to the report, Lafferty admitted she had been drinking. She was then placed under arrest for public disorderly conduct "for being grossly intoxicated in public."

Her vehicle was towed and she was taken to the J. Reuben Long Detention Center. She was released Tuesday at 8:45 a.m. on a $262 bond.
