Authorities say a man driving a float in the Anderson Christmas parade has been charged with drunk driving after he passed another float then sped down Main Street.
When officers caught up to 42-year-old David Allen Rodgers, he had an open container of alcohol in the truck he used to haul the children and adults on the float for a dance studio.

Witnesses say Rodgers was driving in line in Sunday's parade when he pulled out to pass a tractor in the float.
Rodgers, whose child was on the float, faces more than three dozen charges, including DUI, kidnapping and assaulting an officer...wow
First one guy hits a child and kills him..now another driver is driving drunk..luckily he didn't hit a child.
