HARRAH, Okla. — A man was arrested for driving while intoxicated Monday night.

Police say they originally pulled 25-year-old John Wayne DeWitt over for having a tag light out.

The deputy said he could immediately smell “a strong odor of alcohol” coming from the vehicle.

DeWitt was asked to exit the vehicle, and police say he had been sitting on a bottle of alcohol. He allegedly admitted to drinking alcohol and was arrested.

In the backseat of the car, police say they found an open beer can and a 3-year-old child.

DeWitt is currently being held at the Oklahoma County Jail on $12,500 bond.
