A Bryan man has been accused of driving while drunk with a child in the vehicle. Because authorities know that adults are responsible for the health and safety of children, they frequently look at these sorts of situations with a very critical eye. The possibility that an accused person put a child in danger does not bode well for that person and it can take the help of a talented attorney to make sure other people's judgment and disapproval don't enter the justice equation.

The 21-year-old man was pulled over not long after 1 a.m. Saturday for reportedly going a little over the speed limit. The arresting officer observed that the man had bloodshot eyes and had trouble staying upright. He smelled strongly of alcohol and spoke in a slurring manner of speech, the officer reported.

If the man was given a blood-alcohol content test, authorities have not said as much.

The man was taken to Brazos County Jail and remained there as of Monday in lieu of $5,000 bail. He has been charged with driving while intoxicated with a child passenger, which is a felony punishable by up to two years in state prison and a fine that could amount to as much as $10,000.
