The man was advised by AST to have a tow truck assist with his flat tire as he was unable to change it himself.

He was stopped near Mile 76 Sterling Highway and arrested for reckless endangerment for each child in the vehicle. The man was transported to the Wildwood Pre Trial Facility where he was held without bail. The children were released to their mother. Neither drugs or alcohol are factors in the incident.
