A man and woman are accused of driving under the influence in Chesterfield, with a 12-year-old boy in the car. Police stopped Joseph Hughes and Shawn Meroth near Route 288 and Route 1, last Sunday. Officers say both were intoxicated, and the woman had taken the wheel at one point in their ride. The pair was arrested.
The 12-year-old wasn't hurt. However, Hughes and Meroth face child abuse and neglect charges, along with DWI.
