LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A 54-year-old man was arrested after police discovered him with a drunk 17-year-old, whom he claimed was a prostitute.

Police said John Gutterman, 54, was involved in a non-injury accident on January 2 at I-65 south and Warnock Street. He apparently tried to flee the scene.

 When officers arrived, both Gutterman and his passenger appeared to be under the influence of alcohol, smelled strongly of alcohol and were unsteady on their feet. They also had urinated on themselves, said police.

An arrest report states the passenger was a 17-year-old girl. Gutterman told police she was a prostitute and they had just left the Day's Inn after partying.

Gutterman is being charged with leaving the scene of an accident, unlawful transaction with a minor, DUI and wanton endangerment.
