HOUSTON – A man who was out on bond for a DWI was arrested and charged again after deputies say he was caught driving intoxicated with three children in the car.

Florencio Valencia has since been charged with driving while intoxicated with child passengers. His bond was set at $2,000.

On Saturday, Dec. 10, a deputy with Mark Herman’s Office conducted a traffic stop in the 1200 block of the N Sam Houston Parkway East where the driver, identified as Valencia, allegedly showed multiple signs of intoxication while three children, ages 8, 9 and 10, were inside the vehicle.

Deputies said Valencia was given a standardized field sobriety test, which determined his BAC was .13 and .12.

Further investigation also revealed Valencia was out on a $1,001 bond for a previous DWI offense and a $1,001 bond for failure to identify to a police officer.
