HOUSTON — A Galena Park man is behind bars Monday after officers found him passed out at the wheel with children in the car over the weekend, the Houston Police Department said.

He was allegedly high on drugs and inebriated when he and the two children were found Friday, court documents said. Flores’ vehicle was sitting in a moving lane of traffic, the department said.
