Drunk dad charged with child abuse after crash

Nevada Appeal Staff Report

A 28-year-old Indian Hills man was charged with felony child abuse after he was accused of causing a traffic accident because he was driving drunk with his 9-year-old son in the vehicle.

John Tabor was arrested May 5 and is being held on $25,000 bail.

According to reports, he was involved in a three-vehicle accident at Highway 395 and Service Drive. He and his son were not injured, according to reports.

His blood-alcohol content was .179, more than twice the legal limit in Nevada.

He also was charged with his second driving under the influence offense and driving without proof of insurance.

East Fork Justice Jim EnEarl set a May 19 hearing.

Tabor served 30 days in Douglas County Jail in 2007 after he struck a 3-year-old girl with his pickup truck, slightly injuring the child.
