Police plan to charge Puck with driving under the influence, child endangerment and driving without a license, according to the Associated Press.

The AP reports that police allege that Rainey was drunk on Saturday night when the car he was driving veered off the road and tumbled down an embankment. Rainey's son Bogart was in the car, and managed to free himself to get the attention of a passing motorist for help, but Puck was trapped in the car, the AP says.
