    Police say they arrested a Rhode Island man for driving under the influence while going more than 100 mph with a toddler in the backseat.

    Police said Williams had a 3-year-old in the car and the child has since been turned over to the custody of his mother.

    Williams is facing several charges including DUI and driving with an unrestrained child.
