Police Say Dad Used 8-Year-Old To Bypass Drunk-Driving Interlock

MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) _ Police say a man is accused of using his 11-year-old daughter to breathe into an ignition interlock system to start up his truck in New Hampshire.

Police arrested 46-year-old Robert Brennan of Durham, Conn., at a hotel in Manchester on Sunday.

They said Brennan, his daughter, and his 8-year-old son had been sleeping in the truck parked at the hotel. Police believe he had the daughter breathe into the ignition interlock system, allowing him to start the truck and drive.

The children were taken into protective custody pending the arrival of a family member. Brennan was charged with endangering the welfare of a child. It was not immediately known if he had a lawyer.
