A man who was pulled over in an Alabama tunnel told sheriff's deputies that he was texting with both hands and driving the car with his knees -- with a 3-year-old in the car's back seat, authorities said.

Deputies said they also found $4,500 and prescription drugs in the car after they stopped Dandre Moore in a tunnel in Mobile, Ala., on Tuesday, the Mobile County Sheriff's Office said.

Deputies said Moore, 19, told them he had been "double texting" since he was 15 years old.

Two women and the 3-year-old were in the back seat. Dartavious Moore, in the front passenger seat, had an ounce of marijuana in his underwear, sheriff's spokeswoman Lori Myles told the Press-Register newspaper.

When authorities searched the car, they also found several Xanax and a bottle of the prescription painkiller oxycodone, the newspaper reported. The prescription had been filled a week earlier with 720 pills, and there were 386 left, Myles said.
