Deputies from the Pinellas County Sheriff's office arrested a father accused of driving drunk with his infant daughter in the front seat.
Deputies stopped Douglas Fountain, 48, on Ulmerton Road in Largo on Wednesday after an acquaintance of his called to report that he was using drugs and driving in his Dodge pickup truck with his five-month-old baby in the front seat.
Deputies located Fountain a short time later at Mobil gas station.
During the traffic stop, deputies found several knives, including a Bowie knife with a 10-inch blade, a container with 8.5 grams of crystal methamphetamine leaning on the baby's bottle under the passenger seat and a clear glass pipe under the driver's seat.
Fountain was arrested for DUI, Child Abuse, Driving While License Revoked, Possession of Crystal Methamphetamine, Possession of Paraphernalia and Felonious Possession of a Concealed Weapon.
The baby is now in the care of Child Protection Investigators. 
Fountain was found to be a habitual traffic offender, according to deputies.
