According to the complaint, police were told the car almost wrecked at least two times.
Investigators said the 8-year-old said a man got out of his car at the intersection and yelled at her and Cook. Two bystanders stopped the car right around the time the 911 call was made.
The girl told police Cook then switched seats her and got into the driver's seat before police got there, according to the complaint.
Police said they tried to give Cook a sobriety test, but he couldn’t finish it because he was so drunk. The officer had to catch him to keep him from falling to the ground, according to police.
Darlington Township Police Chief Al Filauri said the 8-year-old girl has no relation to the suspect. He said he is a family friend.
Cook is being charged with endangering the welfare of a child, driving under the influence and driving without a license.
