Police were dispatched at 3:15 a.m. to the 900 block of Richland Avenue where they found the car with its engine running and Fausto Sanchez, 23, of Modesto, passed out behind the wheel. 

Officers were able to rouse Sanchez and place the vehicle in park. Officer Kevin Roseen conducted a field sobriety test and determined he was intoxicated. A breath sample indicated that he had twice the legal limit of alcohol to drive a motor vehicle.
