PLAINFIELD, Conn. (AP) - A Plainfield man has been arrested after police say he was pulling kids on a sled behind his speeding pickup truck.

Michael W. Chauvin faces charges of risk of injury to a minor, reckless endangerment and reckless driving. He was charged Monday night.

Police say the 40-year-old Chauvin drove his Dodge Ram truck at “unreasonable speeds” on snow-covered roads, towing the children in the sled.

Police say other people, including children, were in the bed of the truck. One of the children was 9 years old.

Police did not say if Chauvin was related to any of the children.

Chauvin did not immediately return a message seeking comment and it wasn’t known Tuesday if he’s represented by a lawyer.
