Spring Valley Police Department

It’s bad enough drinking and driving.  A Spring Valley man is accused of doing that with two children riding along.

Officers were called Wednesday afternoon about a SUV that went off Marquette Road in Spring Valley and hit a culvert.  Forty-one-year-old Jason Novero says he lost control after moving over to allow another driver to pass him.

Officers though say Novero was driving with a blood alcohol level of more than three times the legal limit.  He was arrested for DUI and endangering the health of a child.  Two children were riding with Novero.  Thankfully nobody was hurt. Novero posted bond and was released from custody.
