An Oklahoma City woman was arrested on multiple complaints, including DUI, after police said she crashed into an officer's patrol car at a McDonald's drive-thru.

According to police, the incident happened at about 2 a.m. Thursday at McDonald's, located at 112 S. Meridian. An officer's scout car was in the driver-thru when it was struck by the vehicle behind him.

Officers said they could smell a strong odor of alcohol coming from the vehicle. The driver, 31-year-old Stacey Elaine Harris, reportedly admitted to police that she had “three to four beers” before getting behind the wheel.

Officers said Harris' speech was slurred, and they could smell an odor of an alcoholic beverage on Harris' breath and person. She lost her balance several times after police asked her to step out of the car.

Harris also failed a field sobriety test. She was then taken into custody.

While she was sitting in the police car, police said Harris offered to give the officers $500 in cash if they let her go home.

Harris was booked into the Oklahoma County Jail on complaints of driving under the influence of alcohol and offering bribe to a police officer.

A passenger in Harris' vehicle, 32-year-old Eric Williston, was arrested on a public drunkenness complaint.
