Michael Bills was arrested for drunk driving. The Susquehanna County man had five juvenile children in his car at the time of arrest. The 45-year-old has been charged with driving under the influence and reckless endangerment, reports Fox 40.
You may be surprised to know that Pennsylvania does not provide a special penalty for people who drive drunk with minors in their vehicles. In many states, the law provides that someone who drives drunk with a child faces enhanced penalties. In Pennsylvania, someone who drives drunk with a child faces the same DUI penalties as any other driver with the penalty largely dependent upon the driver's blood alcohol level at time of arrest.
