A Smokes and Booze PSA

If you have your kids with you…..take them into the bar.  Of course, if you live in a state (like Indiana) where kids are not allowed and you want to buy a 6pack, go to Walmart.

Bridgeville man arrested for leaving son in car while buying beer

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

A Bridgeville man was arrested on Tuesday for leaving his 4-year-old son in the car while he went inside a bar to buy beer.

David Anthony Hopfer, 40, was scheduled to be arraigned at 1 a.m. today on charges of endangering the welfare of a child and possession of a controlled substance. He was also to be charged for parking illegally and for driving with expired inspection.

In a criminal complaint, Officer Roger Itzel said he saw a car parked illegally in front of the Markee Bar on Baldwin Street and a child sleeping in a car seat in the back. He said all of the car windows were up except for one on the driver's side, which was down part way, and he estimated it to be about 80 degrees outside.

Mr. Hopfer came out of the bar about five minutes after Officer Itzel arrived and was arrested. A bartender later came out with a $20 bill Mr. Hopfer had left, saying that he had come in to buy a six-pack of beer.

The officer also found two pill bottles on the front seat, both with Mr. Hopfer's name on them. But the prescription on one of the bottles was for Adderall, when the bottle actually contained two pills of methadone.

The boy was left in the custody of his mother, Autumn Christie, who arrived at the scene to pick him up along with the car.
