DUI Suspect Drove with Child in Car

A West Palm Beach man faces charges of DUI, child abuse and resisting arrest after driving drunk with a 5-year-old in his car.

A witness said he watched the “clearly drunk” man ask for directions in a convenience store. He then saw the man get into a car with a child sitting in the back seat. The witness then called 911 and followed him. The man parked his car outside his home and deputies found him asleep and snoring in the driver’s seat while the child sat in the back. Deputies used a stun gun when the man attempted to walk away with the child.
