A man was arrested after his 13-year-old son called 911 reporting that his father was drunk behind the wheel on Interstate 75, the Collier County Sheriff's Office said.

Deputies say the 13-year-old called 911 and told authorities that his father was driving drunk and that he was scared for his life.

When deputies finally located the vehicle at mile marker 80 on Alligator Alley, Michael Guggino, 50, was found behind the wheel.

The teen told deputies that the two left Pembroke Pines to go to football practice but his father kept driving, CCSO said.

Guggino was transported to the Naples Jail Center and charged with DUI with a child in the car, and refusing a DUI test.

He was released on a $2,000 bond.
