CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. -

A husband and wife were arrested after police received a call about a vehicle at Taco Bell's drive thru window with intoxicated occupants.

Early Friday morning officers responded to the drive thru of Taco Bell at 788 N. Riverside Drive in Clarksville with a reference to a possible intoxicated driver.

When officers arrived they found a 1997 Ford Thunderbird in the drive thru lane with a woman, Autumn Neuner, unconscious in the passenger seat.

The driver, Nathaniel Neuner, got out of the vehicle and told officers he was driving because his wife didn't feel good and she needed an ambulance.

Officers noticed Nathaniel Neuner had slurred speech and pinpoint pupils.

Further investigation revealed that Autumn Neuner had been driving the vehicle earlier before switching to the passenger seat.

Once Autumn Neuner exited the vehicle, she was unsteady on her feet, had difficulty staying awake, and slurred speech.

She told officers she had been taken medications throughout the night.

Officers found an eight-year-old child sitting in the back seat of the vehicle.

Officers administered standardized field sobriety tests to Nathaniel Neuner. After completion of the tests he was taken into custody.

Autumn Neuner  was transported to the hospital due to her level of intoxication. After being cleared by the hospital she was taken in custody.

Officers were unable to locate another adult to take care of the child. The child was turned over to DCS custody.

Nathaniel Neuner, 32, and Autumn Neuner, 41, were booked into Montgomery County Jail and charged with DUI and contributing to dependency. 

Bond was placed at $2,000.
