Guelph police say they have arrested an 18-year-old and charged him with impaired driving after he wouldn’t leave a downtown drive-thru.

Officers were called by an employee of the restaurant at around 2:30 a.m. on Tuesday.

Police said the driver of a vehicle was in the drive-thru and was refusing to leave after being denied a refund for food he purchased from the same restaurant chain but at a different location.
