Kansas man accused of drunken driving with 9 children in SUV

KSAL StaffFebruary 2, 2015

A 32-year-old Kansas man is suspected of drunken driving after being found passed out in the drive-thru of a fast-food restaurant with nine children in his vehicle.

The man, who was arrested on suspicion of multiple counts of driving under the influence and child endangerment, had not been formally charged as of Monday afternoon.

Wichita police say officers responded at 12:30 a.m. Sunday to a McDonald’s restaurant where they found the driver. The Wichita Eagle reports the driver refused to submit to a test for substances and was arrested.

The children in the SUV ranged in age from 5 months to 12 years old.

Police spokesman Lt. James Espinoza says the driver was father of six of the children and uncle of the other three.
