Fort Wayne, IN – We just had a story about some Florida grandparents driving drunk while pulling their granddaughter behind them in a toy car, now we have a pair of morons in Indiana driving drunk with four kids strapped to the hood of a car.
Police were called after witnesses watched 29-year-old Aaron Stefanski and 29-year-old Jessica A. Clark leave a liquor store and proceed to use a tow strap to tie four children, ages ages 4, 5, 6, and 7, to the hood of their car before driving off.
A police officer would pull Stefanski over after observing him driving the car a few blocks away from the store with the children still strapped to the hood.
“I was only going to drive around the corner,” said Stefanski, whose blood alcohol level was twice the legal limit. “I thought they would like it.”
He was arrested and charged with three felony counts of neglect of a dependent, felony operating a vehicle while intoxicated and four misdemeanor counts of criminal recklessness. His 6-year-old daughter and 4-year-old and 5-year-old sons were later released to their mother.
Clark, who tried to walk away from the scene after the couple were pulled over, was arrested and charged with felony neglect of a dependent. Her 7-year-old daughter was placed with state child services and will be staying with her grandparents.
The mother of Stefanski’s kids told reporters that she was livid and shocked over her ex-husband’s actions. She says he has always been a help with the children and is happy that he is in their lives, but has had to tell her children they can no longer see their father.Tags: Aaron Stefanski, Child Endangerment, Crime, Drunk, Indiana, Jessica Clark
