A Janesville man arrested on a drunk driving charge after a DNR warden contacted police was also allowing a young child to steer.

Janesville police say Warden Mike Dieckhoff noticed a vehicle driven by Julius R. Juniel stopped at an intersection. Dieckhoff followed the vehicle because it appeared an eight-year-old child was steering the vehicle for Juniel while sitting on his lap.

A six-year-old and a two-year-old were in the backseat. Juniel failed field sobriety tests, and had a blood alcohol concentration of .24, three times the legal limit. After being processed, Juniel was released to a responsible party.
