Man with prior DUI arrested again and also will face felony child endangerment charges

A Laguna Beach man was pulled over on suspicion of impaired driving Christmas night and subsequently taken into custody for driving under the influence (DUI) with a prior conviction. He also was held for a DUI warrant from Harbor Court.

James Michael Ross, 46, was stopped at 10:05 p.m. in the 3200 block of Laguna Canyon Road, police said.

His 11-year-old son was in the car with him.

That added a felony charge of child endangerment. He was held on $100,000 bail.
