David Koechner’s Wife Asks Court to Suspend His Visitation with Their Children After NYE DUI Arrest

David Koechner's Wife

Leigh Koechner, David Koechner’s estranged wife, does not want him around their children after he was arrested for DUI on New Year’s Eve.

Koechner’s visitation rights with their children have been suspended by Leigh in court documents obtained by PEOPLE. She also requested “safety measures” be put into place to ensure his sobriety.

Among the safeguards are drug testing and the use of a Soberlink device to track his alcohol consumption.

A document David provided to PEOPLE in response to his wife Leigh’s request noted that the couple’s five children weren’t in the car at the time of his DUI and that he is now receiving sobriety treatment.

“My recent stop for an alleged DUI did not occur with any of our children in my custody,” he wrote, adding: “There is nothing exigent for this Court to address through the ex parte process. I am in AA and have a sponsor and I would never do anything to jeopardize the health and safety of our children.”

After Leigh’s arrest, the actor for The Goldbergs said their 15-year-old son Sargent asked him to drive him to the airport.

In January, he filed for divorce from Leigh, whom he married in 1998.

Last Friday at 3 p.m. local time in Simi Valley, California, David was arrested on suspicion of DUI and hit-and-run after he allegedly hit a street sign with his car. In the early hours of Saturday morning, he was released from custody and is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday, March 30.

Neither PEOPLE nor representatives for David were able to get a response from David’s camp.
