APD: Dad Driving Drunk With Kids

Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 04:08 PM CDT

His fun-filled night started at the Landing Strip -- a popular gentleman's club located in southeast Austin.

After a couple of drinks police say Dario Guerrero-Cervantes drove off from the strip club drunk.

According to an arrest affidavit, Guerrero-Cervantes almost made it home -- driving six miles before turning into on-coming traffic.

"The probable cause for the stop was driver driving the car without the headlights on," said Austin Senior Police Officer Veneza Bremner.

Cops say he had a strong odor of alcohol and his eyes were bloodshot and glassy.  In the backseat the officer made a disturbing discovery.

"The officer found there were two children in the car, ages four and seven," added Bremner.

Police arrested Guerrero-Cervantes.  KEYE TV stopped by his home Wednesday to get his side of the story. There were several empty beer cans in the front yard.  A family member who answered the door said the kids were safe and with their mother.

"This guy was lucky he was only arrested and that he wasn't involved in a crash that could've killed or injured his children," said Bremner.

Guerrero-Cervantes is charged with driving while intoxicated.  That's a state jail felony since there were children riding in the car.
