A Portland man is accused of getting drunk and then driving his kids around town on Sunday.

Luis Mendoza, 35, was arrested Monday after police say they received a call from his teenage daughter, who said she and her siblings were terrified.

She told police her father had been drinking for several hours when he forced his kids into a car and drove them to several stores in Cascade Station.

Police say Mendoza admitted to drinking three ‘tall’ beers before driving his kids around.

He is charged with reckless endangerment.
