Lawrence man arrested on charges of driving drunk with infant in vehicle

December 20, 2012


A 30-year-old Lawrence man was arrested Tuesday afternoon on charges of drunken driving and aggravated endangerment of a child following a traffic accident.

Farron L. Tso was the driver of a vehicle that struck a utility pole in the 2400 block of Ousdahl Road shortly before 2 p.m., according to Lawrence Police Sgt. Trent McKinley.

An 8-month-old child was a passenger in the vehicle, which led to the endangerment charge. No one was injured in the accident, McKinley said.

Tso was released on a $3,500 bond.

Struck a utility pole while under the influence AND had his 8 month old child with him? Why the hell was his bond so low? This is what's wrong with society, allow people like this to walk free after doing something so stupid and irresponsible.

He should have been held on a higher bond for such stupidity.

$3,500 must be the value of the life of the 8 month old child.

Tso is a common Navajo name.

Bet he wasn't homeless.

If your dum enough to drive drunk first off then dum enough to drive drunk with your 8 month old in the car I'd say he can't tell time anyway but does it make it better if it was later?

Why was an 8-month old "in the passenger seat"? Guess it's a stupid question. If he would drive drunk, if he would drive drunk with a child in the car, then he would drive with a baby/child in the passenger seat.

A Christmas miracle that "no one was hurt."

It's easy to say "throw the book at him", It's better to say "let due process handle it".
