"Child Protective Services is investigating possible child neglect". That has to be one of the dumbest statements EVER!! I
DUH! or maybe they were training to be on JACKASS!!
FORT WAYNE – Aaron Stefanski thought his kids would enjoy being strapped to the hood of his vehicle when he stopped at a liquor store south of downtown.
“I was only going to drive around the corner. I thought they would like it,” he would later tell police.
Stefanski strapped his two sons, ages 4 and 5, his 6-year-old daughter and the 7-year-old daughter of Jessica Clark to the hood with a tow strap, police said.
Clark and her daughter were riding with Stefanski and his children when they stopped at Belmont Beverage, 2116 Fairfield Ave.
A manager at the liquor store called 911 about 5:30 p.m. Monday when he saw Stefanski use a tow strap to secure the four children to the hood of a large white, 4-door vehicle and head south on Fairfield, the police report said.
A U.S. marshal in the area heard the dispatch and pulled Stefanski over in the 400 block of Poplar Street – about three blocks away, the report said.
Fort Wayne police arrived shortly after and could smell alcohol on Stefanski’s breath, according to a probable cause affidavit filed Tuesday. His blood alcohol level was 0.17 percent, more than twice the legal limit of 0.08 percent in Indiana.
