We're getting an idea of how much a man accused of running over his own grand daughter may have had to drink.
50–year–old Anthony Woods is facing charges of DUI and vehicular assault.
According to an arrest affidavit, Woods admitted to state troopers that he had been drinking and even failed a roadside sobriety test the night officials say he backed over his granddaughter with his jeep.
The affidavit says Woods and another man had been working on the Jeep's transmission during the day and may have each had anywhere from four to six beers in two to three hours.
When woods backed the Jeep out of the garage the other man noticed the infant, payton garlick, on the ground in front of the Jeep. She was not breathing and was rushed to St. Mary's.
The affadavit says that Garlick had been sleeping in a back room of the house and may have gone outside by herself without anyone knowing.
Garlick is listed in critical condition tonight.
