An 80-year-old College Station man remained in the Brazos County Jail Sunday night after being accused of driving while intoxicated with a child in the vehicle.

Authorities said in an arrest report that College Station police officers were called to a hit-and-run accident on Navarro Drive around 9 p.m. Saturday after witnesses reported seeing a sport utility vehicle crash into a street sign and drive off.

As officers were investigating, a vehicle that matched the one described by witnesses returned to the area, according to the officer’s report.

During a subsequent traffic stop, the driver, Alvin Janner, showed signs of intoxication, the report states. Because he had a 12-year-old passenger in the car at the time, he was charged with driving while intoxicated with a child passenger, a state jail felony punishable by up to two years in a state jail.

He was being held Sunday in lieu of $5,000 bail, according to court records.
