Feb. 13 (UPI) — Police in New Brunswick said two men were arrested after taking an intoxicated ride through a McDonald’s drive-through while riding on a couch towed by an ATV.

The Miramichi Police Department said an officer traveling on KG Highway about 3:19 a.m. Thursday spotted a couch being towed behind an ATV at a McDonald’s drive-through with two men riding atop the piece of furniture.

The ATV driver fled on the vehicle, leaving the couch and its occupants behind, and was last seen venturing out onto the frozen Miramichi River.

The couch-riders, ages 28 and 39, were arrested. Police said the men were intoxicated.

The ATV was located later in the day and seized by police, but the driver was not located.

Security camera that appears to show the ATV towing the couch and the passengers, who were wearing helmets, through a Miramichi street was posted to Twitter by Paddy Quinn. The footage is time stamped 3 a.m., moments before the police officer spotted the scene at the drive-through.
