Here's a vacation they'll remember.
They came all the way to Florida from Ohio and the scariest ride they experienced wasn't the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Orlando.
No, it was dad driving while drunk.
Dimitri Manjolivich Nicholas, a 41-year-old dad from Piqua, Ohio is accused of driving so recklessly while drunk that his three children -- two 9-year-old girls and an 11-year-old boy -- jumped from the vehicle he was driving in Palm Coast out of sheer fear, reports The Daytona Beach News-Journal.
The kids told deputies their dad was ¿drunk and has been acting funny all morning,¿ the report stated.
This dad also allegedly failed to stop and ensure they were safe, didn't bother to answer their phone calls or to make sure they arrived back at the location where they are staying, according to the report.
