City police said they made three drunken driving arrests Saturday morning, including a man passed out in a restaurant's drive-through lane and a woman who, rather than subject herself to sobriety tests, reportedly told police to "just arrest me."

Sara Beth Franklin, 21, was stopped after they witnessed her committing several traffic infractions just after midnight, according to reports.

A Breathalyzer test revealed her blood-alcohol content to be 0.18, over twice the legal limit, police said.

Franklin, of Grand Island, was charged with driving while intoxicated, consuming alcohol in a motor vehicle on a highway, and three traffic violations.

Jarod M. Mosher, 29, of 80th Street was arrested at 3 a.m. after city Water Department employees told police they witnessed him side-swipe a parked vehicle in the 7900 block of Lindbergh Avenue, then try to flee the scene.

Mosher was charged with DWI and a parking violation.

Todd M. Ball, 24, of 22nd Street, was arrested after an off-duty officer spotted him asleep behind the wheel while in the drive-through lane for the Tim Horton's restaurant on Pine Avenue, police said.

He had a liquor bottle sticking out of his jacket pocket, reports said.

Ball, who police said registered a blood-alcohol content of 0.20 percent, was charged with DWI, no seat belt and consuming alcohol in a motor vehicle.
