A Carlisle man was arrested after police said they received a report that he was drinking alcohol and being abusive toward five children with him at Letort Park.
Steven M. Fry, 43, was also found to have the children in a vehicle without proper restraints or child safety seats before his arrest Sunday, police said in a news release Tuesday.
The children were between two and eight years old.
Fry was charged with five counts of endangering the welfare of children, DUI, and driving with a suspended license.
The children were unharmed and were turned over to their parents, police said.
