GavelFRANKLIN, Pa. (EYT) – A Franklin man charged with child endangerment and other charges after an accident this spring in Cranberry is scheduled to appear in plea court on Thursday morning.

According to court documents, 28-year-old Cameron Robert Tetreault, of Franklin, is scheduled to appear in Venango County Court of Common Pleas at 9:00 a.m. on Thursday, October 12, in front of Judge Robert Boyer.

He faces the following charges:

– Vehicle Registration Suspended, Summary
– Driving W/O A License, Summary
– Careless Driving, Summary
– Failure to use safety belt – driver and front seat occupant, Summary

According to a criminal complaint, Franklin-based State Police received a report on May 27 of a crash in the Tractor Supply parking lot.

The driver of the second vehicle in the crash called state police and said the other vehicle, a red 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix with Maryland plates, had left the scene with a woman driving and a man in the passenger seat.

The caller was concerned for the safety of a small child in the rear seat because the caller believed the driver and passenger were both drunk.

Trooper Shiley, of PSP Franklin, intercepted the Grand Prix and made a traffic stop at River Front Park in Franklin. He found a man, Tetreault, behind the wheel and smelled alcohol. Tetreault gave Trooper Shiley a Florida driver’s license. Additionally, Tetrault had glassy, bloodshot eyes and slurred speech.

After field sobriety tests, Tetreault was arrested for suspicion of DUI.

A woman in the car, 23-year-old Nicole Mota Henriques, of Franklin, pleaded guilty to public drunkenness September 25 and was fined $100.
