A Portland man was arrested on a drunk driving charge near Hoodoo on New Year’s Day, after police received a call about an intoxicated driver.

The people calling 911?

They were his children, who were sitting in the back seat of his Jeep Cherokee, according to police logs.

Michael Edward Stout, 47, of Portland was also was arrested on charges of reckless driving, two counts of reckless endangering and open container, according to Oregon State Police logs.

The Jeep was headed from Sisters. At a pull-out near Hoodoo, one of the children jumped out of the vehicle barefoot, ran through the snow and into traffic seeking help. A passerby stopped, placed the child in his vehicle, and confronted Stout, taking the other child as well.

The passerby also took Stout’s keys away from him until police arrived.

An Albany trooper arrived on the scene, and Stout failed field sobriety tests. At the Deschutes County Jail, his blood-alcohol-content was measured at 0.2 percent. Stout was lodged at the jail at 7:04 p.m. and released at 9:38 p.m. without posting bail, according to Deschutes County Jail staff.

He is scheduled to appear Feb. 6 in Deschutes County Circuit Court.

A trooper took the children to Salem where they met up with their mother.
