NORWALK, Conn. — Police found marijuana, heroin, crack, cocaine and ecstasy in the car of a Norwalk man who had fallen asleep behind the wheel while in a McDonald's drive-thru, according to the Hour.

Officers responded to the Main Avenue McDonald's at around 2:30 a.m. Friday after receiving a report that a man had fallen asleep behind the wheel, the Hour reported. When they arrived, they found 29-year-old Justin Underhill of Taylor Avenue inside the car, according to the Hour.
