Call it a passing-out lane.
Police arrested a 33-year-old man for driving under the influence after they found him slumped over the wheel of his car in the middle of 86th Street on March 5.
An ambulance driver discovered the guy passed out in traffic between Fourth and Fifth avenues in Bay Ridge at about 5 pm, police said. The driver was so whacked out that he couldn’t stand on his own, law enforcement sources said.
The man, who gave a North Carolina address, refused a breathalyzer test, officials said.
Police charged him with driving impaired by drugs, cops said.
But officials in the Brooklyn District Attorney’s office said the case was sealed on March 7 and declined to specify why.
Courts typically seal cases when the defendant is a juvenile, to protect trade secrets, or when leaving the records open to public inspection could hamper an ongoing national security investigation, according Federal Judicial Center materials.
A woman who answered the phone at the North Carolina address the man gave said she’d never heard of him.
