A father was arrested early Saturday morning in Pike County for driving while intoxicated and neglect of his two-year-old son that was in the truck with him.

Around 12:05 a.m., Indiana State Police responded to C.R. 700 North and C.R. 775 West to help 32-year-old Daniel Dunn of Charlestown, IN free his pickup truck that was hung up in the roadway for nearly two hours. 

Troopers say when they arrived, Dunn was still attempting to get his pickup truck free from the mud. Authorities say they detected an odor of alcohol on Dunn's breath. He also had blood shot eyes, slurred speech and his balance was unstable.  

Dunn's two-year-old son and two other adult passengers were also in the pickup truck. 

Troopers say Dunn had a blood alcohol content of .15%. 

Dunn was arrested and taken to the Pike County Jail where he's being held without bond. 

Dunn's two-year-old son was later released to his grandfather.
