    Police say a central Pennsylvania father was drunk when he drove to a police station to pick up his even drunker son who had been arrested for drunken driving after he was found passed out in his car.

    Online court records don't list attorneys for 44-year-old David Peterson Sr. and 24-year-old David Peterson Jr., who list the same home address in Bellwood.

    The Altoona Mirror reports Monday that city police have charged both men with drunken driving and other violations for incidents that occurred early Jan. 20. The elder Peterson faces a preliminary hearing Feb. 22 and his son on Feb. 15.

    Police say the father's blood-alcohol content was one-and-a-half times the state's legal limit when he drove to the police station, while his son's was slightly more than double the legal limit.
