A 43-year-old man is being charged with DUI and Child Endangerment after deputies say he was driving under the influence of alcohol with his 5-year-old daughter in the car. Deputies found the car pulled over to the side of the road with the man and his daughter asleep in the car, with the car in drive and the engine running.
Additionally, the man registered a 0.17 on a breathalyzer exam, which is over double the legal limit. The man was taken to Kershaw County Detention Center, and his daughter was taken to her grandmothers.
