Sioux Falls man accused of driving drunk with kids in the car

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – A Sioux Falls man is facing child endangerment charges after police say he was driving drunk with his two young daughters in the vehicle.

Police say the 31-year-old father was arrested after an off-duty law enforcement officer saw him driving recklessly and swerving into oncoming traffic Saturday night. Spokesman Sam Clemens says his daughters, ages 8 and 11, were in the back seat.

Clemens says the man had a blood alcohol level of 0.23, nearly three times over the limit for driving. The girls were not injured.
