The State Patrol arrested a local man last week after he allegedly drove while intoxicated with two children in the car, police said.

Joshua Levi Bauwens, 29, 4765 Sand Road S.E., was charged June 9 with OWI and child endangerment.

Officers said they stopped Bauwens around 9 p.m. for speeding and driving with a plate light out, and they said he allegedly smelled of alcohol.

Officials said Bauwens failed three field sobriety tests and was arrested after blowing 0.10 during a preliminary breath test.

Bauwens allegedly had two young children in his truck — girls aged 4 and 7 years old, but they were not harmed.

Second-offense OWI is an aggravated misdemeanor punishable by up to two years in prison and a $6,250 fine. No-injury child endangerment is an aggravated misdemeanor punishable by up to two years in prison and a $6,250 fine.
