A charging affidavit shows the 41-year-old was driving erratically with his three children in the car. The children told deputies they jumped out while he was driving "relatively slow" because they were afraid.

The children walked to a neighbor's house where they called for help. The charging affidavit states that Nicholas never went back to get them.

He showed up hours later and was arrested at the scene.
