A Jacksonville man was charged with drunk driving and a hit and run accident. Oscar Adolfo Gomez was driving with his children, ages 5, 6 and 9. Police said that they stopped Gomez because he was weaving all over the road around 9 p.m. on Friday. When police questioned him after being pulled over,they noticed the strong alcohol odor and slurred speech. They also matched his car to the same one that was involved in a hit and run accident earlier that evening.

The victim of the hit and run was brought to the scene and confirmed Gomez’s car as the one that rear-ended hers earlier. Already plagued with a long record of traffic violations, Gomez was charged with a DUI causing damage, careless driving, a DUI while accompanied by a minor and leaving the scene of an accident.

Gomez fell asleep in the patrol car during the investigation after he told police that he had three beers and had taken codeine.
