"The baby was good as gold," Wood told InsideEdition.com. “He was laughing and playing when we got to the office.”

Due to the car's terrible condition, Graham bathed the baby in a small sink inside their office and towel-dried him. A photograph captured the sweet moment.

“We always have teddy bears in the office,” said Wood. “[The baby] played with the bear and even fell asleep when Child Protective Services had arrived.”

Wood said the baby is currently under the CPS' supervision and is safe from harm.

According to Wood, the driver is facing DUI charges with a minor present, which will lead to sentencing and hundreds of dollars in fines if convicted.

Information on the suspect's plea was not immediately available.
