A drink-driving dad caught asleep at traffic lights had strapped a bottle of whiskey into the car’s child seat — instead of the man’s two-year-old son.

ABC local station KSAT 12 reports that Henry County police in Georgia received a call from a driver saying a man was slumped over in his running car at a green light at 5:30 Saturday morning.

When police arrived to the scene in McDonough, Georgia, they found 39-year-old Robert Eugene Mobley asleep at the wheel.

Mobley had his foot on the brake and his automatic car was set in drive. In the passenger seat was a 2-year-old boy, without a car seat or seatbelt.

In the backseat was a car seat holding a bottle of whiskey, according to police.

When woken and asked for his licence, Mobley told the officer it had been suspended just three weeks earlier for Driving Under Influence (DUI).

He told the officer he had just one beer about an hour previous to the callout.

After failing field sobriety tests, the officer arrested Mobley and charged him with DUI.

Mobley was charged with two counts of DUI including one for child endangerment and possession of cocaine.

As yet, a trial date has not been confirmed.
