MCDONOUGH, Ga. (USA TODAY) — A father was arrested after police say he put his whiskey bottle in the car seat instead of his son.

Henry County Police responded Saturday to a 911 call about a man sitting slumped behind the wheel of his car at a traffic light. The light had changed several times, but the car hadn't moved. When another driver saw a man asleep behind the wheel and a little boy in the front seat, he called police.

According to the police report, the responding officer saw the man passed out with his foot on the brake. A 2-year-old boy was in the front passenger seat without a seat belt or car seat.

Instead, the officer claims he saw the car seat in the back was holding a whiskey bottle. He had to knock on the window three times to get the man's attention. When he woke up, he took his foot off the brake and it started rolling backward. The officer shouted for him to put it in park, and he did. The man identified himself as Robert Eugene Mobley. According to that same report, Mobley said he didn't have a valid driver's license because it had been suspended in July after a DUI.
