PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

A homeless man pleaded guilty to aggravated DUI Tuesday after police say he drove to a Circle K while high with two children inside the car, police said.

Scott Marley was arrested in early July.

According to police, somebody saw Marley passed out his car just after 7 p.m. at the Arco gas station at 43rd Avenue and Bethany Home Road and called the police. The caller said he still had a needle in his arm and there were two children in the back seat.

Officers then saw Marley take a wide right turn and park at the Circle K at 35th Avenue and Bethany Home Roadaccording to court documents.

Officers talked to him and a needle was spotted inside the car, police said. The two kids inside the car were 5 years old and 1 year old.

Marley reportedly failed field sobriety tests and was taken into custody.

Court documents said he told police he used heroin earlier that morning but that was it. He later admitted he injected half a gram of heroin an hour before he was seen passed out, police said.

Marley is set to be sentenced August 16.
