Illegal Alien Arrested for 3rd DUI--This Time With Young Son

"...there's a good chance he will be deported."

An illegal alien from El Salvador has been arrested in Michigan for his third DUI, and this time he had his 1-year-old son and girlfriend in the car with him.

Police were alerted to 35-year-old Juan Carlos Banoschavez's erratic driving when other motorists spotted him driving the wrong way down a street. The girlfriend claims Banoschaves only had one drink, and that he was driving in order to rush their son to the hospital:

From WJBK:

"He's a good guy, and it's not like he drives all the time. This was an emergency," said Shirley Munez, the suspect's girlfriend.

She claims their son had a 105 degree fever and they needed to rush him to the hospital.

"He had a drink like around 4:00 p.m. and then my son woke up crying around midnight," Munez said. "I'm told him we had to take him to the emergency room, and on our way back we got lost and we ended up going to wrong way and we got pulled over."

It appears Banoschavez had more than one drink. The video shows him failing his sobriety test, and police say he had a blood alcohol level of 0.12.

Banoschavez has been arrested and charged with operating a vehicle under the influence and drunk driving was a passenger under the age of 16.

Banoschavez's license had already been revoked because of his previous drunk driving arrests.

Even if he posts bond, FOX 2 has learned he will be handed over to U.S. Immigration officials, and there's a good chance he will be deported.
