A father accused of drunk driving while his 5-year-old son was in the car is claiming that the allegations are false.

Last Friday night, a car accident happened involving the Cape Cod man as well as an ambulance. According to the report issued by the Cape Cod police, the father was driving intoxicated when he failed to stop behind an emergency vehicle, crashing into the back of the vehicle. The ambulance had it’s lights on and the vehicle slammed into it again, this time becoming lodged into the back.

The man was arrested after police smelled alcohol on his breath and was reportedly wearing his shirt backwards. His son was taken to a local hospital and treated for minor injuries after being thrown from his seat due to not properly being fastened into the car. The Cape Cod man is denying these allegations, stating that his son was strapped into the car and definitely had a seat belt on.

The police are standing behind their report and the man is due back in court in November to face the charges against him.
