(Newser) – No matter how excited you are about the snow, you should not take a bunch of kids sledding via pickup truck. Michael W. Chauvin was arrested last night in Plainfield, Conn., after police officers say they found him driving his Dodge Ram down a street, with children being towed behind it on a sled, at what the Hartford Courant calls "a high rate of speed." The 40-year-old was charged with four counts of risk of injury to a minor, along with charges of reckless driving and second-degree reckless endangerment. NBC Connecticut reports that there were also kids—and an adult—in the bed of the truck.
