A McDonald’s restaurant in the British city of Cambridge reportedly has bouncers breathalyzing some late-night customers as part of a police pilot program to combat troublesome late-night behavior.
A 25-year-old teacher was barred from entering the establishment at 2 a.m. after he was found to be over the alcohol limit for driving, the Cambridge News reports.
“How do you get turned away from McDonalds for being too drunk?” he told the newspaper in disbelief. “I don’t know why anyone would be there at 2am if they hadn’t been drinking.”
A McDonald’s spokeswoman told the newspaper it’s part of a police initiative: “At the request of Cambridgeshire police we are taking part in their pilot [program]. A person’s behavior will determine the likelihood of them being breathalyzed and this should have no impact on the majority of our customers.
