   FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) -- A Fort Wayne man has pleaded guilty to several charges for driving three blocks with four children strapped to his car's hood while he was intoxicated.

   Twenty-nine-year-old Aaron Stefanski accepted a plea agreement with prosecutors Monday during an Allen County court hearing. Stefanski was arrested in May after someone called 911 saying he saw Stefanski use a tow strap to secure the children to the car's hood and drive away.

   The Journal Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/OVto5D ) Stefanski pleaded guilty to child neglect and drunken driving charges and faces six months to three years on each of the four felony counts when he's sentenced Aug. 3.

   Police say Stefanski told officers he thought the children ages 4 to 7 would enjoy the ride and that he was only driving around the corner.
