BRUNSWICK, Ohio (WJW) -

An Ohio man faces several charges after leading police on a chase over a Big Mac.

Randall W. Miller, 31, faces charges including failure to comply, operating a vehicle while intoxicated, driving under suspension and no operator's license in the case.

According to Brunswick police, a pedestrian reported that a sport-utility vehicle was speeding and nearly hit him at an intersection at around 1 a.m. Sept. 28.

Police found the SUV exiting a McDonald's drive-thru near Center Road, swerving outside his lane. They attempted to stop Miller, but he continued driving, eventually stopping a short while later at Grafton Road.

Police said there was a strong odor of alcohol coming from the vehicle, and Miller's speech appeared to be slurred.

According to police, Miller apologized and said he was very drunk, but wanted to eat his Big Mac before he stopped. He continued to eat the sandwich during the stop until he was asked to complete field sobriety tests.

Police said Miller admitted to drinking 10 to 15 beers and "it wasn't worth the trouble."

According to breathalyzer test results, Miller had a blood alcohol content level of .255, which is more than three times the legal limit.

Officers said they also found an open beer and several beer cans in his vehicle.

Miller was cited and released to his wife. Police said he has had two previous OVI convictions in the past six years.
