VAN BUREN COUNTY, Mich. — A man is facing several charges accused of drinking liquor inside a vehicle with as many as five children present.
Deputies say it happened around 5 p.m. Sunday on 6th Avenue near M-40 north of Gobles when they were called for reports of two men drinking alcohol inside a car with kids in the back seat.
When they arrived, they noticed the car had left the park and was in a driveway less than a mile away.
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.
