MANSFIELD, OH (WOIO) - A 24-year-old Mansfield father busted for being wasted while on a walk with his young children.

Steven Melendez was pushing his kids in a stroller while showing the common signs of intoxication - glassy and blood shot eyes, slurred speech, unsteady balance and a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage about his breath and person.

Upon speaking with the officer, Melendez admitted to drinking "a couple of Budweiser beers" and was unable to stand without leaning on his children's stroller.

Melendez was placed under arrest and later passed out cold. The children's mother was contacted to come pick up the kids.
