The Mesa County District Attorney's office still has yet to file any charges against a man accused of backing over his own granddaughter.
Anthony Woods was in court this morning where more time was requested before filing charges.
State Troopers say woods had been drinking at his home and working on his Jeep when he backed it out of his garage and ran over 11–month–old Payton Garlick.
Woods' attorney says they are still waiting for his BAC level to come back and Troopers can't prove woods was drinking.
He says it was a terrible accident that could have happened to anyone and doesn't think any charges should be filed against Woods.
The District Attorney's Office says they are waiting for the Colorado State Patrol's full report before they decide what to do.
Woods is facing charges of vehicular assault, DUI and careless driving.
He'll be back in court later this month.

    It is sad how this story is being reported. I know tons of people who like to work on their vehicles and have a beer or two. The fact that Mr. Woods had a few beers was not the cause of the terrible accident. I know there have been times that I did not see things that were behind my vehicle. This could have happened to anyone at anytime. People need to have a little compasion for the family, as well as Mr. Woods. Look at the facts, and then make reports. None of the media knows Mr. Woods on a personal level, so how can they make him out to be a monster if they do not know that he is. From my understanding he is a kind caring father and grandfather. People need to step back and think of how they would feel if the shoe were on the other foot. Exploiting a family's tragedy for the purpose of having a story is sad. I am sure there are much more important things to report besides a family's ongoing tragedy. None of us live in that family's house so it is wrong to judge, leave them to heal.
