Asheboro, NC -- Micheal Jenkins, a 21-year-old Randolph County man, already had two DWI charges on his record, a revoked license and a court appearance just days away, but on Halloween, he decided to drink and drive, again.
His decision led to his third DWI later that night in a neighborhood with trick-or-treating children.
Police reports show Jenkins rear-ended a vehicle which pushed it forward and caused it to hit another car. There were four victims in total taken to the hospital; authorities say Jenkins blew a .15 blood alcohol level.
News 2 attempted to track down Jenkins to ask why he decided to drive drunk on a night when so many children were out with the parents on he roads. Our day-long search to find the convicted DWI offender led us to a house in Randleman, where the address was listed on the Halloween night police report.
"He ain't lived here since he was 17-years-old," said Mike Turner, the man who answered the door.
Turner says he took his nephew, Jenkins, in when he was just 10-years-old.
"He didn't want to listen to me so i just let him leave," he said.
Jenkins' rebellion has since turned into a criminal record.
"It's very bad now. I'm really sad for what happened, especially for the kids that were involved in the accident," Turner added.
The wednesday night accident was only the the latest of Jenkins' three DWI offenses.
The 21-year-old was convicted of one charge in 2008. Two other charges, including the one from the Halloween night accident, are pending. He also has a list of other alcohol related-offenses in South Carolina.
Back in 2009, he pleaded guilty to public intoxication.
"I hope he opens his eyes and straightens up," said his uncle. Turner says he hasn't seen his nephew in about a month.
Next, our search took us to the Randolph County courthouse.
We were given a document from the clerk's office with a different address.
There were three cars in the driveway, we knocked and knocked, but no one answered the door.
Jenkins is supposed to appear in court - twice -- later this month for the two pending charges.
