Horns started honking as a sport-utility vehicle sat through six green lights at a south-central Pennsylvania intersection, police said.

Officers arrived to investigate the SUV that seemed to be parked in the intersection, and found the driver asleep at the wheel, with his foot on the brake and a beer in the console.

Officers yelled to wake the man, then had to quickly halt the vehicle when his foot came off the brake and it drifted into the intersection Saturday night in Carroll Township, about 15 miles west of Harrisburg.

The 41-year-old was charged with driving under the influence.
