San Benito police arrested a father for endangering his children after he was arrested for DWI.

On Sunday, August 3rd at around 11 pm a San Benito police officer conducted a traffic stop on a driver at the intersection of Biddle Street and Perkins on a traffic infraction.

The driver, identified as Elmer Ordonez, 35, was accompanied by his wife and two children ranging in ages from 1 to 3 years-old.

The officer noticed a odor of alcohol from Ordonez's breath and asked him to perform a field sobriety test which Ordonez failed.

Ordonez was arrested for DWI, two counts of endangering a child and additionally failure to identify after intentionally giving a different date of birth to the officer.
