A Bank Street man is facing a slew of charges.
It started late Friday night when deputies received a complaint about an intoxicated person with a child, at Walmart. That led to a traffic stop and the arrest of 25-year-old Cody Bush.
He was charged with a felony count of driving under the influence of drugs, Felony DWI and driving without a license. Deputies also wrote him for numerous traffic violations.
Deputies said Bush had his two-year-old child in the car.

Klimjack had him in custody before the crime was even reported.
