NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

A Nacogdoches man who drove drunk and wrecked with six young children in his car has pleaded guilty to the crime.

Court records show Miguel Angel Marroquin, 34, pleaded guilty to DWI with child passengers on October 20 in District Judge Campbell Cox's courtroom, accepting a 30-day county jail sentence, plus five years of probation.

According to a probable cause affidavit, Marroquin was driving on FM 2863 in January when he hit a 2001 Ford Escape, totaling it. He then drove away from the scene, with only three working tires, for about a half-mile on County Road 522 before his Dodge pickup stopped moving, according to the affidavit.

A DPS trooper caught up to Marroquin and saw he had six children with him, all between the ages of 2 and 10.

The trooper reported he had glassy eyes, slurred speech and a strong odor of alcohol on his breath.
