Man accused of drunk driving with 6-year-old son in car in Tampa

TAMPA — A 40-year-old man was arrested Sunday at Tampa International Airport, accused of driving while intoxicated with his 6-year-old son in the car, police said.

An airport police officer stopped Bradley Walker Younger about 9 p.m. after receiving reports of an impaired driver in the departure area.

When the officer approached Younger's 1972 white Ford Mustang, he could smell a "distinct odor of an alcoholic beverage," an arrest affidavit shows. Younger's speech was slurred and his eyes were bloodshot and glassy.

Younger, of St. Petersburg, refused to complete a sobriety test and a breath sample, according to the affidavit. During the traffic stop, Younger's 6-year-old son was sitting inside the Mustang.

Younger faces child neglect, driving with a suspended license and DUI charges.

He was booked into the Hillsborough County jail, where he remained Monday in lieu of $2,750 bail.

    University of South Florida undergraduates gather at the USF Sun Dome in Tampa for last fall's commencement ceremony. A new survey finds their average student debt upon graduating was $22,276. Statewide, 2016 Florida grads ranked a relatively unencumbered 45th among states, averaging $24,461 in student debt. [Photo Luis Santana | Times]
  2. Romano: One person, one vote is not really accurate when it comes to Florida

    Politics

    Imagine this:

    Your mail-in ballot for the St. Petersburg mayoral election has just arrived. According to the fine print, if you live on the west side of the city, your ballot will count as one vote. Meanwhile, a ballot in St. Pete's northeast section counts for three votes.
