Vegan drunk driver fined $1,000 over 200 chicken nuggets

A vegan drunk driver was fined AUS$1,000 after a bizarre incident in which he demanded 200 chicken nuggets from staff at a drive-thru, before adding 200 hash browns to his order.

The man was fined $1,000 over an order for 200 chicken nuggets

Kole Olsen, 30, plead guilty to one count of drunk driving at Hornsby Local Court in Sydney, Australia, this week following the incident at a McDonald’s car park, as reported by The Daily Telegraph.

The court heard how Olsen had entered the drive thru after a night of drinking and promptly ordered 200 chicken nuggets. When staff explained his order wasn’t available, he yelled “I want my f****** nuggets”.

He then completed four laps of the drive-thru lane while honking his horn before ordering 200 hash browns instead. Staff obliged this request and charged him AUS$230 for the super-sized, carb heavy meal.

However on realising extent of the bounty of hash browns he had acquired, Olsen returned to the restaurant for a refund from staff, who by this point had locked themselves in the restaurant in fear for their safety. Quickly forgetting what he ordered, he then asked to be reimbursed for 200 large fries and 200 Big Macs instead.

In one final twist, Olsen told the court he was in fact vegan. Olsen was fined $1,000, banned from driving for nine months and and sentenced to a one-year good behaviour bond.
