It ended up being the deputy who had to explain what was going on.

A DUI investigation turned into a delivery for Nassau County Dale Hutcherson, dropping off Chick-fil-A to 17-year-old Clayton Davis.

“I was out in the duck woods and I was just trying to get a few ducks before I came home, then get a nice breakfast and go to work,” Davis said. “Almost home and place the order, breakfast bowl, Coke Zero.”

But that breakfast bowl and Coke Zero showed up a little bit later than expected.

“Estimated time it kept getting push backed and I was like uh-oh, so I look on the app, it said John and it looks like he’s pulled over,” Davis said. “So I texted -- hey John what’s going on and I get a text from him just call.”

His original driver John Kaminski was arrested for DUI and two counts of possession of a scheduled substance after deputies said he hit cones and almost other cars near the Chick-fil-A on State Road 200.

“Noticed a to-go order in the passenger seat and as we were going through the car the message went on the phone that I saw, I didn’t see an address so I told him to call,” Deputy Hutcherson. “Made a phone call to him found out where he was and made sure he got his breakfast so he didn’t starve.”

Deputy Hutcherson was the backup during the traffic stop and knew he had to finish the order.

“I’d want someone to bring me my food if I was hungry,” Deputy Hutcherson said.

“I’m a religious man and that was closest thing I seen to Jesus so far -- my Chick-fil-A coming up in the driveway like that,” Davis said.

Deputy Hutcherson said he was just doing his job to help out the community, and to get out of doing some paperwork with the towing company, so he left that to his partner.
