(NEWSER) – Nothing like cracking open a brew and falling asleep ... at the wheel of your patrol car.

That's apparently why California State Parks Ranger Tyson Young was found dozing in his parked vehicle on Aug. 15 in Northern California, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. A passerby (who's staying anonymous) found him passed out and intoxicated on State Route 254 in Humboldt Redwoods State Park, officials say.

Afraid Young was injured, the passerby called out to him and banged the hood, but no luck, Last Coast Outpost reports. "I shook him, really shook him," said the man. "And then I saw the beer between his legs."
