A Kentucky police chief was arrested over the weekend after officers found him passed out drunk in the drive-through at Taco Bell.

Tyrone Fields, chief of Whitesburg police, was charged early Sunday with drunken driving after officers were called to the fast-food restaurant in Hazard.

Police said they found Fields behind the wheel shortly after 1 a.m. but could not awaken him, and he was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital.

Fields, who has been with Whitesburg police since 2008 and chief since 2011, said he was taken to the hospital for a blood test – not medical treatment.

“It’s very unfortunate, but I’ve learned from it,” Fields said. “Just never do it again, pick up the pieces and move on.”

He was scheduled to meet early this week with Mayor James Craft to discuss the incident.

"So this news that the SDNY is looking into what Rudy Giuliani was doing overseas in Ukraine, explain what they’re doing. Also, very weird since Giuliani used to run the office," Tur noted.

On Monday, the Wall Street Journal reported that President Donald Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani is having his banking records scrutinized as part of the federal criminal investigation into his dealings in the Ukraine.

The report says that prosecutors are also looking into his work for a city mayor in the country.
