GTCo Dad Accused of Picking Up Kids From School Drunk Formally Charged

A Grand Traverse County dad accused of picking up his kids drunk from school has been formally charged.

Last month, Stephen Tooker was arrested for driving drunk in East Bay Township.

Monday morning, he appeared in front of a Grand Traverse District judge.

Tooker is charged with two counts of drunk driving, driving on a suspended license and failure to stop after a collision.

Police say Tooker picked up his seven-year-old from Glenn Loomis Montessori school.

He also had his three-year-old daughter in the car.

But as he was pulling out, police say he hit another car, then took off.
