PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Police say a man driving from the Oregon coast to southwest Washington with his three children was arrested for investigation of drunken driving after the car stalled near a Portland bridge.

Lt. Robert King says officers responded to a report of a stalled car Monday evening and wound up arresting Daniel Lee Sherman. King says they later learned that the children had been texting their grandmother with concerns about their father's driving.

The 34-year-old man was arrested for investigation of DUI, reckless driving and three counts of reckless endangerment.

King says the children -- ages 10, 9 and 3 -- were released to the custody of their grandmother, who lives in Woodland, Wash.

Sherman reportedly was making a 250-mile trip from Coos Bay, Ore., to La Center, Wash.
