According to court records, Bello was on top of 22-year-old Dickison San Juan. Both were passed out with the car still running, both in various states of undress.

Police say they had to push Bello off of San Juan to wake her up. Officers say San Juan failed a sobriety test and the couple ended up in jail.

Police say one of the kids was strapped into a car seat, the other was not, and now both parents are charged with child endangerment.

Bello was given a $2,000 bond, while San Juan's bond was set at $30,000. He is also facing a DUI charge after the incident.

The kids are now staying with family members.
