(SELLERSBURG) - A man was arrested early Sunday morning after he approached two troopers and told them he was too drunk to drive, Indiana State Police said.

The incident happened a little after 5 a.m. in the parking lot of a McDonald's in Sellersburg, ISP Sgt. Jerry Goodin said.

The troopers said they saw the man drive his car into the parking lot as they spoke outside the restaurant.

Police said Joshua Oakley, 21, of Middlesboro, Ky., handed his keys to one of the troopers and told him he "was too drunk to drive."

Police said Oakley was intoxicated, but refused to take an alcohol breath test and was taken to the Clark County Jail.

"While being processed at the jail, he physically began resisting officers," Goodin said. "He was subdued without injury to himself or officers."

Oakley was arrested on charges of driving while intoxicated, resisting law enforcement and public intoxication.
