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.
