Father Accused of DWI While Daughters in Car

A 24-year-old man was arrested for driving while intoxicated with a child passenger on August 5, 2011.

Allegedly, Jason Wayne Atkinson was driving over the speed limit northbound on highway 79 in the 1900 block.

Atkinson was ordered to pull over by Deputy Lee Grossman, but he allegedly kept driving into Clay county.

When Atkinson was pulled over and detained, he said he was only trying to get his two daughters home safely. When searching the vehicle, officers allegedly found an open beer.

Atkinson would go on to fail three sobriety tests that night, according to the affidavit.
