LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

A 35-year-old Lake Charles man with a history of DWI arrests is in custody after driving drunk with an infant in the car, authorities said.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Kim Myers said Brian K. Williams Sr. was stopped for a traffic violation Tuesday night near the intersection of McKinley and Buren streets.

"When the deputy approached the car and spoke with Williams, he detected a strong odor of alcohol emitting from Williams' breath," Myers said Wednesday in a news release. "Williams advised the deputy that he had been drinking prior to driving."

Myers said a 4-month-old child was in the car and Williams had an active warrant for a charge of third-offense DWI.

Williams is facing charges of fourth-offense DWI, child endangerment and driving with a suspended license.

Bond was pending.
