PRINCETON, W. Va. – When a West Virginia State trooper found a one-year-old boy a car with a suspected drunk driver, he took the baby in and cared for him until help arrived.
According to the Bluefield Daily Telegraph, trooper B.R. Wood arrested a driver for DUI around 5 p.m. Tuesday in Princeton, West Virginia.
In the backseat, he found a toddler covered in vomit. Wood immediately brought the baby boy back to the station with him to get him cleaned up.
Photos show Senior Trooper D.C. Graham giving the baby a bath in the break room sink. Afterwards, Graham wrapped the baby boy in a towel and cradled him until Child Protective Services arrived.
“He was the best little baby. He had just started to nod off when CPS arrived,” Wood told the Bluefield Daily Telegraph.
WCHS reports the baby is now with a legal guardian. The driver of the car is charged with DUI with a minor.
