NORWALK - A Darien father is facing multiple charges after police say he was driving with a blood-alcohol level that was three times the legal limit with his two children in the car.

A Stamford woman says Thomas Paul, 39, pulled into her driveway Monday slumped over the steering wheel with the children asking for help. The woman says she then helped get the children to safety. Police say the children are now being cared for by family members.

Paul is currently free on bond.
