MIRAMICHI, N.B. — Two New Brunswick men have been arrested after allegedly going through a McDonald's drive-thru on a couch.

Miramichi police said an officer spotted the couch, being towed behind an ATV, at 3:19 a.m. Thursday in the drive-thru.

"And when (the officer) put his lights on, of course he took off, the four-wheeler did, with the sofa still attached. But he left his two passengers from the sofa at the drive-thru," Cpl. Lorri McEachern said Friday.

"The two passengers from the sofa, or the couch, or whatever you want to call it, were intoxicated."

The driver raced through the parking lot, across the highway and onto the frozen Miramichi River, still towing the couch through much of his escape, she said.

"He got away, but they got the four-wheeler later on that day and seized the four-wheeler, so now they just have to locate the driver," she said.

Illegal to tow couch through drive-thru

Two local men, aged 28 and 39, will face yet-to-be-determined charges.

McEachern said it is illegal to tow a couch through a drive-thru, but the two men were wearing helmets.

"So obviously safety was somewhat important," noted McEachern.
