Children Jump From Car With Drunk Father Driving

PALM COAST, Fla. (AP) — Florida authorities say three children visiting from Ohio jumped out of a moving car with their drunken father behind the wheel.

Demitri Nicholas of Piqua, Ohio, was arrested Monday in Palm Coast and charged with felony child neglect. Jail records show he’s been released from the Flagler County Jail after posting $2,500 bond. It’s not immediately known if he has an attorney.

A charging affidavit shows the 41-year-old was driving erratically with his three children in the car. The children told deputies they jumped out while he was driving “relatively slow” because they were afraid.

The children walked to a neighbor’s house where they called for help. The charging affidavit states that Nicholas never went back to get them.

He showed up hours later and was arrested on scene.
