Registered sex offender stopped with car full of boys

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Nashville police are investigating why a registered sex offender was allegedly driving drunk with five young boys in his car. 

An officer stopped Michael Wayne Ingram early Saturday after seeing him drive recklessly.       Police say Ingram was convicted of raping a boy in 1991.

Officers said they tried to conduct a field sobriety test, but Ingram was nearly too intoxicated to stand.

Authorities say Ingram may have met one of the 12- and 13-year-old boys in his car through a Web site.

The report says the boys were having a sleepover when Ingram called one of them and asked to meet him.

Charges against Ingram include violating the sexual offenders registry and DUI.
