BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) -- A former champion swimmer has been charged with drunken driving and child neglect.
The South Florida Sun Sentinel reports 54-year-old Andy Coan was arrested June 5 at a Boca Raton elementary school, where he was picking up his 8-year-old son.
Police say someone called to report Coan appeared impaired, and officers say he smelled of alcohol and failed a sobriety test.
A police report says he refused to take a breath test.
Coan is a Fort Lauderdale native who set a world record at the age of 17 in the 100-meter freestyle.
He was a gold medalist in national and world championships, but never made it to the Olympics because of a wrist injury.
A phone message left for Coan on Wednesday was not immediately returned.
