Last updated on Sunday, May 13, 2012

(FORT WAYNE) - Formal charges have been filed against a Fort Wayne man accused of driving three blocks with four children strapped to the hood of his car while he was intoxicated.

Aaron Stefanski, 29, faces four misdemeanor counts of criminal recklessness, three felony counts of neglect of a dependent, a felony count of operating a vehicle while intoxicated and a misdemeanor count of operating a vehicle while intoxicated, authorities said.

Witnesses called 911 Monday night after they spotted a man and woman pull out of a liquor store parking lot with four children tied down with tow straps.

Stefanski was cited for four child restraint violations and for driving without insurance, officials said.

The mother of three of the children has been formally charged with felony neglect of a dependent, police said.

The two remained in custody Saturday at the Allen County Jail.
