A Helena man is accused of driving while impaired with a 4-year-old girl in the backseat.

Andrew J. Cosentino, 28, is jailed on a felony charge of criminal child endangerment. He also faces a felony charge of driving under the influence, fourth offense. 

Court documents say a witness called police Tuesday afternoon after seeing Cosentino swaying and having trouble walking in a Montana Avenue store. The witness told an officer Cosentino smelled of alcohol. 

An officer found Cosentino trying to start his vehicle in the parking lot, the documents state. Field sobriety tests showed signs of impairment. Cosentino refused to submit to blood alcohol content testing.
