According to Fort Wayne police spokesman John Chambers, a witness called police Monday evening after seeing a man and woman strap the kids onto the hood of their car at a parking lot in front of a liquor store, then driving away.
Chambers explained a U.S. marshal stopped the vehicle and reported that the children, ages 4, 5, 6, and 7, were not injured.
The man, who has yet to be identified, was arrested for driving under the influence and may soon be facing other charges.
Driving while under the influence, referred to as DUI or DWI, is a serious crime, punishable by numerous penalties which include expensive fines, driver’s license revocation, being ordered to install an interlock ignition device and even being sent to prison. A DUI can also have severe personal repercussions, causing the motorist to get fired from their job or have a hard time finding a new one. If you have been arrested for DUI in Indiana, help is available to you right now to contest your charges. Speak to an Indiana DUI lawyer immediately to discuss your options and file a case.
DWI attorneys work diligently to ensure your case ends quickly and positively. Many times, motorists are unjustly arrested for DWI either because of officer suspicion or because of a faulty breath test. If your paralegal suspects that any fraudulent evidence was used against you, they will not rest until your charges are wiped out completely.
