Drunk Dad Drove With Four Kids Strapped To His Hood

Illustration for article titled Drunk Dad Drove With Four Kids Strapped To His Hood

An unidentified Fort Wayne, Ind. man was leaving a local liquor store with his wife and four kids when the adults apparently got the bright idea to strap the children to the hood. You know, for fun.


A U.S. Marshal saw the dad driving with children on the hood of a swerving car and promptly stopped the ride and waited for local place to arrive and arrest the man. Police suspect the man was intoxicated. The Department of Child Services was also called.

"They were strapped down with one of those straps you crank on a semi to hold down lumber. They were strapped with that thing, wiggling and wobbling down the street," a witness told WRTV.


Witnesses said he told police, "It was only 20 feet," and acted as if it were a joke.

The kids — aged 4,5,6, and 7 — are all fine as the dad strapped them tightly to the hood and was only able to drive a few blocks before being apprehended. Well, physically fine. The deep emotional and psychological pain of having this guy as your father is hard to imagine.

To be honest, if he was going slow and it wasn't a long distance it's not a big deal (the drunk part is). My dad used to do this kind of shit when I was young with my two other siblings. We all grew up to be awesome. I think we need to be a little less safe in order to have awesome kids. The current generation kids are a bunch of junkie sissies (Not you Jalops's kids, all of you guys are awesome parents)

He used to blast Motley Crew and drive around town like if he was in a skidpad in a Renault Nevada wagon. All this while my siblings and I sat in the open trunk headbanging. Fucking awesome if you ask me.
