A 43-year-old Kershaw man was charged with driving under the influence (DUI) and Child Endangerment after an incident where the man was allegedly asleep at the wheel of his car with the engine running and the car in drive.

The Kershaw police administered a breathalyzer test which registered a .17, over two times the legal limit.  He was taken into the Kershaw County Detention Center.  The child was released to her grandmother.

The charge of DUI can be serious enough.  However, when this is coupled with a charge of child endangerment, or any other aggravating circumstances, the potential for jail-time becomes a reality.  If you have been charged with a DUI, Felony DUI, or any other drinking related charged, contact the law offices of Reeves, Aiken & Hightower, LLP.  We are ready to assist you with your legal problem.  Contact us at 803-548-4444, or toll-free at 877-374-5999.
