Police responded to 48 Tusculum Road at just after 7 a.m. on Sunday after someone struck a car in the driveway and flipped their vehicle in the front yard, according to police reports. When police arrived, Francisco Vribe-Robledo, 23, was out of the vehicle and told police that he was okay.
Police detected a strong smell of alcohol coming from the driver. His speech was slurred, had trouble answering questions and lost his balance a couple times while walking.
In the vehicle with Vribe-Robledo at the time of the accident were his three children, ages 4 months, 2 and 3. All the children were transported to Vanderbilt Pediatric Hospital for injuries, as was Vribe-Robledo. There was only one child seat in the vehicle, police noted.
Vribe-Robledo told police at the hospital that he had been at some friends' house drinking and having fun all night and doesn't remember the time that he drank his last alcoholic beverage.

Tishomingo County voters OK beer, alcohol sales
May 22, 2013 23:38 GMT
IUKA, Miss. (AP) -- Tishomingo County is the latest Mississippi jurisdiction to legalize alcohol sales.
Voters approved the sale of liquor, wine and beer Tuesday, reports the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal (http://bit.ly/13JCcix).
It wasn't clear referendums would pass until affidavit ballots were counted Wednesday.
With more than half Tishomingo County's voters casting ballots, legalizing alcohol passed by 42 votes, while legalizing beer and light wine passed by 73. The county borders Alabama and Tennessee.
Lawmakers legalized liquor at a proposed resort at the county's Bay Springs Lake in 2010, but it wasn't built.
Greene County voters legalized beer sales last year, while Corinth, New Albany and Senatobia have legalized alcohol sales under a 2012 law that allows cities to hold votes.
Mississippi has 13 remaining counties that allow no beer or alcohol sales.
