MIDLAND - A Midland man landed himself behind bars when he fell asleep at the wheel.

27-year-old Ricardo Alvarez was arrested last Friday night.

Officers found him passed out in his car as he was waiting in line at the Whataburger on Midkiff.

They yelled and budged Alvarez to try to wake him up but he didn't flinch.

Alvarez eventually woke up and police had him get out of his car.

That's when they smelled alcohol on Alvarez and noticed he could barely stand.

He refused to take a sobriety test and officers arrested him.

This is the third DWI charge for Alvarez in the past five years.
