Drunken father admits to strapping four children to the hood of his car and driving around town ‘because he thought they’d like it’

A father who strapped four young children to  the hood of his car and drunkenly drove away from a liquor store has pleaded  guilty to child endangerment charges.

Aaron Stefanski, 29, told police he tied the  kids down because he ‘thought they would like it’ and that he was ‘just driving  around the corner.’

Now Stefanski faces up to three years in  prison for the crimes after taking a plea deal with prosecutors in Fort Wayne,  Indiana.

In May, police stopped Stefanski and his  girlfriend, Jessica Clark, 30, after a liquor store clerk spotted the children  strapped to the hood of Stefanski’s white sedan.

Stefanski had died his sons, age 4 and 5, and  his daughter, age 6, along with Clark’s 7-year-old daughter, to the outside of  the car.

According to police, Stefanski’s blood  alcohol level at the time was 0.17 percent — more than twice the legal limit.

INC Now reported  witnesses saying that after  the irresponsible couple were pulled over,  the woman began to leave and  disposed of a cup she had in her hand.

‘Everyone said, “No! She watched it all, sat  in the passenger seat and let it all happen. Take her too!” So they called her  back and handcuffed her,’ a witness told a reporter.

The four children were strapped to the roof of this car which was stopped by police on its way from a liquor store in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Luckily none of the children were hurt 

Child Protective Services were also called  to the scene and are currently investigating possible child neglect.

The man’s former partner and mother of his  three children, named only as Sarah, said she was ‘livid and in shock’ and that  the children would no longer get to see their dad.

‘If I knew their father was going to do this  I never would’ve let them go with him.’
