PHOENIX — An extreme DUI suspect took a toddler on a beer run in South Phoenix, according to police.

Phoenix police report that around 1 a.m. on April 6, they detained 25-year-old Orlando Lee Eschief in the parking lot of a Circle K near 32nd Street and Broadway Road.

He's been charged with aggravated DUI and shoplifting.
