Dwight Clayton Steele Sr., 49, of Oklahoma City, was arrested about 5:45 p.m. Tuesday after police found him walking eastbound on NW 90. His car was parked about a block away in the middle of N Harvey Avenue, according to the police report.
Officers found two young boys in the backseat crying. The car was turned off and the driver's window was down, according to the report.
The older boy told police his dad had picked up a girl and followed her when she got out of the car.
Master Sgt. Gary Knight said Steele appeared to be under the influence of either drugs or alcohol. When asked if he knew where he was, Steele responded, “Yeah, over here,” Steele said.
The two children were taken into custody and released to their mother. Steele was taken to the Oklahoma County jail. His bail was set at $10,000.
