    Child endangerment charges have been filed against a southern New Jersey father who allegedly was driving drunk with his two young children in the car.

    Galloway Township police say 30-year-old Paul Dessicino of Mays Landing was also charged with heroin possession after his vehicle was stopped around 9:30 a.m. Saturday on Route 30.

    Police had stopped the vehicle after another driver called 911 to report a car that was being driven erratically and at one point had almost overturned.

    Dessicino's two children, ages 4 and 5, were found inside the vehicle and were not injured. They were turned over to their mother.

    Dessicino's bail was set at $10,000. A telephone number for him could not be located Sunday, and it was not known if he has retained a lawyer.
