CORALVILLE, Iowa — A Coralville man has been accused of being drunk and falling asleep in his car while his foot was on the brake pedal.

Police for the University of Iowa said they found 22-year-old Jon Roupe asleep and covered in vomit early Sunday on a parking ramp.

A complaint said the car, which was in reverse, started to roll backward when officers tried to remove Roupe.

Roupe failed a field sobriety test. He has been charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated.
