West Greenwich, RI - A West Greenwich man is expected to be in court Monday to face his third charge of driving under the influence.

State police arrested and charged Richard Rutherford, 58, of West Greenwich after someone called 911 to tell police he was driving erratically.

Troopers stopped his truck and also found four children in the truck between the ages of 2 and 10.

Officials arraigned Rutherford at the State Police barracks and he was transferred to the Adult Correctional Institutions in Cranston. He was also cited for child restraint violations.

Police said Rutherford had previously been arrested in Iowa and Texas on related impaired driving charges.

Police said they called the Department of Children, Youth and Families, and the children were released to a family friend.
