Aaron S. Stefanski and the children's mother Jessica A.... Aaron S. Stefanski and the children's mother Jessica A. Clark (theindychannel.com).
Just when you thought poor Seamus Romney had it bad when he was packed like a piece of luggage on the car roof for a family vacation, along comes a story that makes Mitt Romney look like a doting dog owner.

Police in Fort Wayne, Ind. have arrested Aaron S. Stefanski, 29, alleging he drove out of a liquor store parking lot with four children strapped to the hood of his car.

Stefanski had a blood alcohol content of .17, more than twice Indiana's legal limit, according to police. He was charged with driving while intoxicated and neglect of a dependent. His passenger, Jessica A. Clark, of Fort Wayne, also faces a neglect charge.

On Monday evening, witnesses stay Stefanski used a tow strap to secure the children, ages 4, 5, 6 and 7 and believed they would enjoy the experience. The journey lasted for three blocks. A U.S. marshal who happened to be driving in the neighborhood, pulled the vehicle over and called the police.

The kids had been secured, "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," witness Tom Nowak tells the Journal Gazette of Fort Wayne.

The newspaper reported the children were uninjured, and that more charges could come, as the incident is still under investigation from the Fort Wayne Police Department, Department of Child Services and the Allen County Prosecutor's Office.

Three of the children were related, according to television station WLKY, and are now home with their mother, who was unaware of the unusual transportation arrangement until police called.

      What's really even more sad and dememted is that the courts will probably let her have the children back. Just you wait and see.

      If you asked Seamus which he preferred: a ride on top of the car or being slaughtered and eating by Obama, I think he would have chose the ride!!!!!!!!

      Are you kidding me!! This girl needs to stop having children! They should take all 4 of these kids away, and lock them both behind bars! What is wrong with people today!

        3 of them were not her children.

        I personally agree with you.......but the mother said she wasn't aware of that happening to her children.

      These kids were way to young to enjoy that. Parents use very poor judgement. I cant imagine both parents getting drunk at the same time having kids of this young age. Kids need at least one sober parent, preferably two.

      This happens when close relatives breed with each other. That is probably Romney's problem too.. Am I the only one that thinks voting for someone dumb enough to follow a religion that was founded by some idiot conning everyone into thinking he had an epiphany in a cave... LMAO! This will be an easy election for B.O. TRAILER TRASH PLEASE QUIT BREEDING, YOUR MAKING IT TO EASY ON THE REST OF US.

        How is that different than believeing that Jesus walked on water, turned water into wine, Moses parted the Red Sea, that he spoke with a burning bush? The answer...It's NO different and no harder to believe than most of the bible! My question is, when did the Mormon Church throw you out?

        This will be an easy election for B.O. TRAILER TRASH PLEASE QUIT BREEDING, YOUR MAKING IT TO EASY ON THE REST OF US. Your statement written w/o proper punctuation and the wrong usage of your (possessive form) not the contracted verb form indicates you may be one of the TT crowd, trying to pass as a poser. That scenario is confirmed when you crow about the wisdom for voting FOR the only Communist, illegitimate, g ay President with the absolute worst record of deficits. raising taxes, breaking laws, and abuse of power in US history. Goodnite, and don't let the bedbugs or other bloodsucking vermin present in your bed bite!

        It is the economy..... Maybe you missed the W. Virginia primary??? One of the only states with someone running against Obama in the primary. Only registered Dems were allowed to vote. The Dem challenger got a full 40% of the votes. The kicker is this guy is in prison!! Think about a prisoner getting 4 out of 10 votes. What does that tell you?
