When pulled over, authorities say the parents of the child said they'd never do something to hurt their child. Court records show Nyhus told a deputy he could handle his liquor, because he comes from a long line of alcoholics.

Nyhus had a blood alcohol level of .205, two and a half times the legal limit for driving.
