LAYTON, Utah — A 21-year-old man is in custody following an alleged DUI on US-89 on Friday, the Davis County Sheriff’s Office says.

The vehicle was first observed going southbound on US-89 at Oak Hills Drive, and it was unable to stay in its own lane. According to a probable cause statement, the vehicle kept crossing over the center line and obstructing traffic. 

When authorities made a traffic stop on the vehicle, authorities found Daniel Flores, 21, sitting behind the steering wheel. According to the probable cause statement, he had blood shot eyes and slow and deliberate speech.

While waiting for additional officers to arrive, Flores climbed in the back seat of the vehicle next to a 8-year-old passenger. The passenger in the front seat had moved into the driver’s seat. 

When asked to exit the vehicle, Flores refused. Eventually, authorities had to unbuckle and pull Flores from the vehicle. 

A field sobriety test was conducted on Flores. 

Flores was arrested for investigation of DUI with a passenger under 18 in the vehicle and improper usage of lanes. He was booked into the Davis County Jail.
