Man Arrested for DUI; Had Children in the Vehicle

A twenty-eight-year-old Trion man was arrested earlier this month and charged with DUI and child endangerment at Little Caesar’s Pizza in Summerville.

According to a report from the Georgia State Patrol, someone at the restaurant noticed that a man in the drive-thru was acting strangely and his speech was slow and slurred.  The person also noticed that there were children in the vehicle.  Witnesses reported seeing the vehicle nearly strike another vehicle in the parking lot of the restaurant.  Someone at the scene called 911 to report the man.

A Georgia State Trooper responded to the scene and talked with Michael Bryant of Trion.  Bryant told the trooper that he had taken medication a couple of hours earlier.  Later the trooper heard Bryant telling someone else that he had two drinks as well.  Bryant was placed under arrest for DUI and Child Endangerment and taken to the Chattooga County Jail.
