Charges: Man Drove Drunk On Xmas With Child, 2, In Car

HASTINGS, Minn. (WCCO) — An Owatonna, Minn. man has been charged with driving while intoxicated on Christmas Day with his 2-year-old son in the car.

According to the criminal complaint, police pulled over a vehicle Sunday evening near County Road 50 and Denmark Avenue in Farmington. The car was observed swerving back and forth before fishtailing on a gravel road.

The officer said the driver, 22-year-old Ahmed Stanley, demonstrated slow reaction times and was slurring his speech.

The officer said there was a 2-year-old child in the vehicle, as well as an open, partially full beer container on the floor.

Stanley was taken into custody. The officer said he became violent upon being arrested and slammed his head into the squad car’s back partition. A blood alcohol test later revealed Stanley had a BAC level of 0.15.

The child was returned to the custody of his mother.

Stanley has been charged with two gross misdemeanor counts of driving while impaired, one gross misdemeanor count of child endangerment and one misdemeanor count of driving with an open container of alcohol.

      His mustache arouses me..

  • Wow-Cheers

    The whitest Ahmed in world history!

  • GH

    What a stupid comment. He was over the legal limit and had a child in the car!! I’m guessing you must have a DWI also (can’t see any other reason someone would stand up for this idiot)

  • Eric

    Your right, its Christmas and you can’t even have a few beers..

  • jld

    and the Father of the Year award goes to!
    WTH is wrong with people? The worst part, he’ll just get out and do it again and this time probably kill someone…maybe even that baby.

  • jld

    You’re kidding right? A FEW beers (unless drank on an empty stomach and in fast succession) likely would’ve been fine and likely wouldn’t have caused a BAC of almost TWICE the legal limit. I you’re going to be STUPID enough to drink and drive, don’t be stupid enough to entangle the life of a child who didn’t have the choice of getting in the car…makes me wonder where the other adults were or if there were other adults that allowed this to happen.

  • defending what-drunks?

    Poor judgement and an idiot.
    That said – most who drink have poor judgement at some point and are idiots.
    Just stating the obvious and what even a sober drunk can see. 24 hiurs sober anyway. ;-)

    Well, to those of you who say that people like me only throw non-whites thru the wood chipper when we hear of a heinous crime, WELL, HERE YOU GO….. I tried to comment on the loser WHITE PERP who groped a 13 year old girl at the Fridley Walmart. But guess what, I couldn ‘t leave one!! Who’s fault is that??

    Put the blame on those who run the website, not those who try to express themselves. I DON’T discriminate. A CRIME is a CRIME, regardless of race, and I REFUSE to downplay any serious crime just because the PERP happens to have the racial/ethnic/cultural traits that are differennt than a society based on BASIC, mutual respect, and common civility.that used to be commonly known. People like me didn’t CAUSE ANY of THIS, but maybe, we might be required to stop it someday.

      Your absolutely correct, Brett. Male sex offenders are rarely given a comment page, and If we try to leave a comment it is deleted. I wonder if this will make it?

    My dad’s a rat faced sociopath with a low IQ and bad acne. Thanks, God.

  • backie

    That is what white people do the chances of the getting caught is slim because the police is busy trying to get u know who

  • tom

    What white person would name their kid Ahmed, that is probably his problem, he has to live with that name.

  • g8bbgg

    Does he play for the Vikings?

  • just sayin

    Man, that is one fugly, inbred son of a gun!

  • Rita

    what an idiot

  • See Ya

    WCCO Stinks – just a bunch of O’Bummer lovers. I’ve tried commenting on stories too and have not been able to.
    If you’re going to be a loser and get behind the wheel after drinking, leave the little kid at home and finish your beer before leaving.

  • Amy Senser

    Could we take it easy on him. I mean, he hasn’t even killed anyone yet.

  • bob

    Looks like he threw up on himself. Why do morons like this reproduce.
