Man charged with impaired driving with 7-year-old in vehicle
A 43-year-old faces drunk driving charges after allegedly driving with a blood alcohol level three times the legal limit while a young boy was in the car.
The man’s vehicle was spotted Mach 9 straddling two lanes of traffic near Whitemud Drive and 178th Street in the early afternoon. A witness reported the vehicle swerved to avoid hitting the curb and came close to hitting five other cars.
When police caught up to the car on the southside, they say the driver appeared to be intoxicated. The boy was sitting in the passenger seat.
A partially-consumed bottle of alcohol was found in the vehicle and the man was charged with impaired driving.
