An Aiken couple was charged this weekend after reportedly driving drunk with their two children in the vehicle.

Robert Earl Gunnels III, 53, and Brandy Lee Gunnels, 40, both of the 1400 block of Audubon Drive, are charged with two counts of child endangerment or unlawful neglect of a child, according to jail records.

Robert is also charged with driving under the influence, over .10 but less than .16, while Brandy is also charged with failure to comply with police and disorderly conduct, records show.

Aiken Department of Public Safety officers responded Saturday around 6 p.m. to Wing Place at 732 East Pine Log Road in reference to a report of an intoxicated man attempting to drive away from the bar with a child, according to the report.
