GOLDEN VALLEY, Ariz. -- Mohave County Sheriff's deputies arrested a man who was allegedly driving drunk and speeding with his two young daughters in the car.

Jose Enrique Reyes, 46, of Kingman was stopped early Saturday evening. He is facing charges of aggravated felony DUI along with extreme DUI and excessive speed.

Deputies conducted a traffic stop after they observed a vehicle traveling 89 miles per hour in a posted 65 MPH zone on Highway 68.

They found Reyes behind the wheel and Reyes' daughters, ages 10 and 12 in the car.

Deputies smelled an odor of alcohol on Reyes, according to a spokeswoman with the Mohave County Sheriff's Dept.

Following the field sobriety tests, Reyes was taken into custody and transported to the Mohave County Jail where an analysis revealed his blood alcohol concentration to be .253 percent.

He was booked into the jail without incident. Reyes children were released to their mother. The vehicle was towed from the scene.
