LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A Lufkin man was arrested Saturday after a state trooper pulled him over and discovered he was driving drunk with a 9-year-old passenger, according to DPS.

Sgt. Greg Sanches said Trooper Phillip Richard pulled Devin Williams, 27, over at the Dairy Queen located at State Highway 103 East and Loop 287 after a motorist called authorities with a complaint of another motorist driving recklessly.

Richard conducted a field sobriety test with Williams, which he failed, Sanches said. And because Williams had a passenger under the age of 15 in the vehicle, Williams is charged with a felony crime.

Williams bonded out of the Angelina County Jail at $5,000.
