A married San Carlos couple is accused of drinking and driving with four young children in their minivan.

54-year old James Arthur Lee and 43-year old Wendy Maureen Lee are in custody on felony charges. A deputy who pulled the minivan over Jan. 22 said he found 14 empty beer cans, an empty bottle of rum and the husband could barely stand up.

Investigators say the mother and father had pulled over twice, so they could guzzle down more beer, and a witness says the driver blew through a stop sign and almost hit another car.

James Lee also had a restraining order prohibiting contact with his wife, and he was driving on a suspended license from a previous DUI conviction.
