MARIEMONT, Ohio - A southwest Ohio man was charged with child endangering after police say they stopped him on suspicion of drunken driving and he told them he had left his 8-year-old grandson at home alone.

Mariemont police Chief Richard Hines says officers in the Cincinnati suburb stopped 51-year-old Carl Bird Jr. of Loveland on Wednesday. Court documents say his blood alcohol level was .275, well above Ohio's legal driving limit of .08.

Hines says Bird was charged with operating a vehicle under the influence.

Loveland police then went to Bird's house where they say they found the back door open, a revolver and bullets in a bathroom and a marijuana pipe on Bird's bed.

Court records don't list an attorney for Bird, who is in jail in Cincinnati.
