Children call police on father for DUI

Posted at 5:04 PM, Apr 14, 2016
Two children are speaking out about a frightening ride with their father.
 
They say he was drunk when he took them to Colorado for vacation, and had to beg him to pull over after he almost plowed into another car.
 
"We told him we don't want to go anymore because you are drunk and I don't want to die", said 14-year-old Mackenzie Behrens.
 
Mackenzie and her 12-year-old brother Ethan texted 911 for help.
 
Police eventually caught up with their dad who failed a sobriety test and was nearly 3 times over the legal limit.
 
He's now charged with DUI and two counts of driving drunk with minors in the vehicle.
