As history has shown us time and again, and again, and again, it's usually not dad who hops behind the wheel after one too many and goes for a cruise with the kiddies rolling around in the backseat. But this just proves the News Gods above are always ready with a curve ball.

Bobby Kennedy, 38, was not living up to his august nameplate Monday night when police spotted him at 107 mph in a 55 zone on Monday night. According to 19ActionNews, the driver refused to stop, leading police on a zig-zagging pursuit from Cuyahoga Falls to Akron. The car eventually ran out of gas, and Kennedy hoofed it on foot. Police found a 5-year-old and 15-year-old in the abandoned car.

Kennedy was finally taken down by the K9 dog. The police determined he was drunk and high. He was taken to Akron City Hospital, but walked out the door after receiving treatment because no one seemed to think to book the guy. Police say they plan on laying charges on Kennedy, you know, when they get around to it.
