Former Chiefs QB Tyler Thigpen Found Asleep At Wendy’s Drive-Thru, Charged With DUI
On this week's episode of Undercover Boss, Wendy's CEO Emil Brolick works the drive-thru window and gets more than he bargained for.
That would be former Chiefs' quarterback Tyler Thigpen, allegedly drunk and dozing peacefully while his truck idled in the drive-thru lane on Sunday Morning. That's according to the Myrtle Beach Sun-News:
According to a S.C. Highway Patrol incident report, Horry County police officers who were responding to a call at the BP gas station at U.S. 17 Bypass and 10th Avenue North saw a black Cadillac sport utility vehicle pull up to the nearby Wendy’s drive-thru. After about 20 minutes, Horry County police noticed the truck hadn’t moved.
The officers approached the Cadillac and saw that Thigpen was asleep in the driver’s seat with his foot on the brake. Horry County police said it took several minutes to awaken him. When they did, Thigpen told police he was confused, didn’t know where he was or how he had gotten there, according to the report.
In Thigpen's defense, it takes a lot of time to fill an order for 77 Junior Bacon Cheeseburgers.
Thigpen played for the Chiefs from 2007-09, then for the Dolphins and Bills through 2012. He was dropped from the Cleveland Browns roster this past August.
