CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A father is behind bars after police say he was driving with a blood-alcohol level nearly four times the legal limit with his kids in the car.

Philip Halas, 36, was arrested Thursday after police stopped him for speeding in the 4100 block of Springdale Road. According to court documents, he tested a .305 blood-alcohol level. The legal limit for an adult in Ohio is .08.

Police say Halas also had his 14 and 15-year-old children in the car with him.

He faces charges of child endangering. He pled not guilty in court Friday and had his bond set at 10 percent of $10,000.
