Trooper D.C. Graham of the West Virginia State Police bathes a baby found covered in vomit in the back seat of a car involved in a suspected DUI stop Tuesday, August 23, 2016 night.

WEST VIRGINIA — A state trooper who stopped a driver on suspicion of DUI ended up removing a one-year-old baby from the car and taking the child back to headquarters to give the vomit-covered baby a bath.

The baby was found after troopers pulled over the suspected drunk driver in Princeton, West Virginia.

Trooper D.C. Graham put the baby, who they suspect had been sick for a while, in the sink for a refreshing bath and then wrapped the baby in a towel and watched over the childĀ until officials from child protective services showed up.

The child looked pleased during the sink-bath at headquarters. The baby is now with a legal guardian and the driver faces DUI charges.
