Surprisingly Sober Dad Locks Kids In Car Trunk For Vacation

Not content to let the Australians beat us in the category of "worst parents," an Oregon man was arrested yesterday for locking two of his kids in his car's trunk for the family vacation. The small car he was driving didn't have room for himself, his fiancee and his four kids so he did the reasonable thing and stowed two away in the back. We say reasonable because taking two cars would be horrible for the environment and letting them ride in their siblings' laps would be uncomfortable. Of course, if dad had just rented a Family Truckster he could have avoided being charged with two counts of reckless endangerment. "Spring Break 2007, WHOOO!"
