Police: Iowa man snoozes with foot on car brake

CORALVILLE, Iowa (AP) — A Coralville man has been accused of being drunk and falling asleep in his car while his foot was on the driver’s brake pedal.

Police for the University of Iowa say they found 22-year-old Jon Roupe asleep and covered in vomit early Sunday morning at a parking ramp.

A complaint says the car, which was in reverse, started to roll backward when officers tried to remove Roupe.

The Iowa City Press-Citizen reports (http://icp-c.com/18VZVk3 ) Roupe failed a field sobriety test. He has been charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated.

Records do not list an attorney.
