Man arrested for drunk driving with two children left in car

ATTLEBORO, Mass. -- Two young girls were left alone in the back of a car and police say they were towed away, after their father was hauled away.

Police say that father was drunk during that dangerous drive.

They say this is the second drunk driving arrest for the suspect this year, and that he put his two young children in danger.

30-year-old Fredly Misere of Pawtucket, Rhode Island was arrested for drunk driving Sunday morning after a tow truck operator found him stopped in the high-speed lane on I-95 South in Attleboro, slumped over the wheel and asleep in his Mercedes SUV with a bottle of beer between his legs.

But after the car was towed to the lot, the tow operator told police he'd discovered two children in the backseat, a 4-year-old and a 3-month-old baby. Misere was also charged with child endangerment and was arraigned on Monday. But, the mother of the two children defended her boyfriend.

“He was driving, but the fact that he had not slept the night before, he started getting tired, so he pulled over and tried to get a nap before he bring the kids home,” said Madeline Germain.

When told police said that he had a beer between his legs, she responded:

“That's what they said, but I wasn't there, so I don't know.”

When asked if she thinks it’s safe for him to be around her kids, she responded:

“Yes, because he's a great dad, and he's been good to the kids.”

But, Misere is on probation for a previous drunk driving offense in Quincy. He was arrested again on Tuesday when he didn't show up in Quincy District Court. Wiping back tears in Attleboro Court, his girlfriend says it's all a big mix-up.

“It was miscommunication on their part, that they should have tell him that tomorrow he have to show up at 10:30 at Quincy. If you don't show up, you get arrested for it. You cannot just arrest that person for telling them,” said Germain.

The two kids were checked out at the hospital. The mother says they're fine, but police say they have contacted the State Department of Children and Families.
