An Ottertail, Minnesota man is facing drunk driving charges, for allegedly driving drunk with a 4 month old in his vehicle. Authorities got an anonymous call saying 28 year-old Derrick Nyhus was drunk in an Ottertail Restaurant, and would soon be leaving.


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.
