A 47-year-old Moorhead man's twin 12-year-old daughters told a deputy their dad drove up to 100 mph and asked them to open beer cans for him as he sped along Clay County roads, Forum Communications reports.

Thomas Eugene Iverson is charged with two counts of felony driving while intoxicated and two counts of endangering a child in a situation that could cause harm or death, a gross misdemeanor, Forum reports.

Iverson was pulled over by a Clay County deputy Friday night for speeding on Highway 10 in Dilworth, Forum reports. A deputy said Iverson had nearly hit a parked car and failed field sobriety tests after he was stopped.

Forum reports that one of the frightened girls told the deputy she had pretended to vomit in an effort to get her father to slow down, according to a criminal complaint.

Forum reports that court records show Iverson has at least three prior drunken-driving convictions, including one in 2010 in Minnesota.
