WEBSTER, MA (WHDH) - A Southbridge man is facing charges after Webster police said he drove drunk with a young child in the car.

Officers responded Friday to Route 16 after receiving several tips regarding an erratic driver, according to police.

Santiago was charged with operation under the influence of alcohol, negligent operation of a motor vehicle and reckless endangerment of a child.

He is slated to be arraigned by Dudley District Court on Monday.
