A Hopkinsville man was arrested on DUI and Wanton Endangerment charges after he wrecked with his one-year old baby in his vehicle on the bypass yesterday.
The incident happened around 2pm, according to the report from Hopkinsville Police, which says 18-year old Austin Dale Jones of Hopkinsville was westbound near the Fort Campbell Boulevard intersection when he fell asleep and ran off the road.
His vehicle overturned onto the drivers’ side, though Jones and one-year old Kiylee Jones went uninjured. Police say they found two empty bags of synthetic marijuana and an empty prescription pill bottle in the vehicle, and Jones reportedly admitted to doing the drugs.
Jones was arrested and charged with aggravated DUI, Wanton Endangerment and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and lodged in the Christian County Jail.
