Driver with TGI Fridays margarita runs over police officer

Dec 5, 2013

I’m still unsure if Yamica Horton one-upped that naked lady who peed herself in the TGI Fridays parking lot on Monday. But, when it comes to drunken crimes related to the national chain, this one’s gotta be in the 2013 top 10: 26-year-old Horton, a Chicago native, faces multiple charges related to driving under the influence after crashing her car into a pedestrian who was crossing the street. The pedestrian was a cop, and a TGI Fridays margarita was secured in her drink holder.

Her blood-alcohol level registered at 0.079.

Horton, having already drank half of the to-go margarita, plowed into the plainclothes officer around 8:30 p.m. on Sunday. He did not sustain any major injuries, but the hospital reported “soreness throughout his body.” Horton was released on a $40,000 bond on Monday afternoon.

According to the restaurant’s website, TGI Fridays’ margaritas come in six flavors and are garnished with fresh lime, Patron tequila and salted glass rims. It’s still unknown how she was able to leave the restaurant with the cocktail.
