A Casper man was arrested and booked on charges of Driving Under the Influence and Child Endangerment, after it was believed he took a months old child in a vehicle and drove while intoxicated.
According to police paperwork, officers responded to the area of South Missouri Avenue and Preserve Circle, for reports of a fight. Officers arrived just after 11:30 pm on Wednesday June 7, 2017, and reported seeing the aggressor, “a pretty big guy” get into a silver truck and drive away.
Witnesses on scene reported to officers that the man in the silver truck was very intoxicated and had driven off with a baby in the silver truck. While making the report, the silver truck pulled up behind the officer’s patrol vehicle, where police were able to make contact with the suspect.
Officers note in an arrest affidavit, that a young child was seen in the vehicle, in a car seat. The report says that neither the seat nor the child were buckled down.

In the affidavit officers say that Davis exhibited “bloodshot red eyes,” “inconsistent responses,” “poor dexterity,” “combative attitude,” and “the odor of alcoholic beverage coming from Davis.”
