Van Buren Co. driver arrested for drinking in car with children

VAN BUREN COUNTY, Mich. — A man is facing several charges accused of drinking liquor inside a vehicle with as many as five children present.

Authorities questioned the driver and his passenger, who were both drinking inside a car with children, climbing out of the backseat.

The driver, only being identified as a 30-year-old man from the Gobles area, was arrested and now faces multiple charges.
