Drunk Dad Arrested as He Attempts to Drive His 2 Kids Home From a Bar

But a dad in Connecticut brought his 8- and 11-year-old kids to a bar and then proceeded to get intoxicated. Making matters worse, he was reportedly planning to drive his kids home!

Glen White, 48, was arrested by Willimantic, Connecticut, police after bar employees called 911 when they said they saw the dad ushering his kids to the car. 

This took place after White was tossed out of the bar shortly before 2 a.m. for being "extremely intoxicated." Ugh, these poor kids! This story is heartbreaking on so many levels. Police said the youngsters were "grossly underdressed" considering the low temperatures.

Maybe this man is going through some serious personal problems, but still, that is no reason to ever set this horrible example and put these innocent kids in serious danger. Thank heavens someone stopped him before they got in the car!

And a bar is no place for children -- especially that late at night. We have to wonder why the bar ever let them in in the first place? 

Let's hope these kids are in a safe situation and this dad gets the help he needs.
