(Newser) – There are drunk dads who designate their not-yet-10-year-olds as designated drivers ... and then there are men who just strap their kids to the hood and hit the open road. That's exactly what happened last night in Fort Wayne, Indiana, say police, who were alerted by a witness who saw a man and woman tie the kids down and drive off, reports the Journal Gazette. Where did they depart from? Why a liquor store, of course! How far did they make it? About three blocks, before a US Marshal spotted the car adorned with the kids, ages 4, 5, 6, and 7. The unnamed man was arrested on suspicion of DUI, and the woman was taken in for questioning.

After all the out cry with romny and his dog,this (in wants of a better word) fool rode with his kids strapped out side his vehicle, 'guess he thought that he could get away with it because people seem to be more concerned over the wellfare of animals than people.
