Police: Man went drinking at bar, left 3 kids in car

A Danbury man is free on bond this morning after he allegedly left his three children in his car while he went to a bar.



Police say Edgar Hernandez was arrested Sunday outside the Copa Cabana bar on Ives Street.



They say a witness called 911 to say three children all under the age of 10 were left in a running vehicle.



They say he smelled like alcohol, and witnesses say he'd been inside for at least 10 minutes.
