A Campbellsville man has been arrested and charged with DUI after allegedly driving when he had been drinking with four children in his vehicle.

Alfonso Escudero-Hernandez, 35, of 102 Ray Court was arrested at 7:26 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 10.

According to court records, Escudero-Hernandez ran a stop sign at the intersection of Martin Luther King and Carnation streets and was not wearing his seat belt.

In his report, Campbellsville Police Officer Shannon Wilson stated that he drove behind Escudero-Hernandez on Martin Luther King and South Central Avenue and activated his police lights.

Wilson stated that Escudero-Hernandez looked at him in his mirror and drove on the centerline of traffic but did not stop after he activated his siren until reaching his home on Ray Court.

Wilson found four children in the vehicle, along with four beer cans. He stated that Escudero-Hernandez smelled of alcohol and failed several field sobriety tests, including having a blood alcohol level of .199, higher than the legal limit of .08.

Escudero-Hernandez was charged with DUI, first-degree fleeing or evading police, disregarding a stop sign and failure to wear a seat belt.

Bond was set at $2,000 cash. He was ordered to not violate the law or consume any alcohol or drugs. He is scheduled to appear in Taylor District Court for arraignment Monday, Sept. 29.
