Cape Coral police arrested 27-year-old Joshua James Fagan last
week, after seeing a pickup truck drive onto a median.
When officers stopped the truck, Fagan told them he was teaching his son to drive.
Officers say the father's speech was slurred, his breath
smelled of alcohol and he was unable to stand without swaying.
Police say an open case of Budweiser beer was in the backseat.
Fagan was charged with cruelty toward a child and allowing an
unlicensed minor to drive.
He was released from jail on $2,000 bond.
Fagan did not return a phone call seeking comment.
A spokeswoman with the Department of Children & Families says
the agency is investigating.
