Drunk driver facing child endangerment charges in Iowa
An intoxicated driver was arrested in late September and is currently facing several charges in Newton after authorities found him operating his vehicle under the influence of alcohol with his four children riding in the car with him at the time.
According to reports, a 40-year-old Marshalltown resident was apprehended on September 26 after he was observed by a police officer to be driving erratically along the 1300 block of First Avenue. Authorities discovered that there were four children inside the vehicle, and the driver – who happened to be their father – reportedly refused to submit to testing and admitted to being intoxicated several times. The driver was also apparently driving without a valid license and had two prior OWI arrests.
Though no one was hurt in this recent OWI arrest, the Iowa lawyers of the LaMarca Law Group, P.C., understand that accidents caused by intoxicated drivers often leave families struggling to recover from the devastating consequences.
