Drunk Dad Tries to Avoid DUI by Letting 8 Year-Old Son Drive
Posted on Aug 01, 2011
Louisiana police were in for a surprise over the weekend when they responded to a call about an erratic driver. They pulled the driver over and discovered it was an 8 year-old boy! The boy's father, a 28 year-old from Mississippi, had been drinking and had allegedly instructed his son to drive to Texas while he slept in the passenger seat. The boy's 4 year-old sister rode in the backseat. The father is facing several charges, including child desertion, allowing a minor to drive, and open alcohol container.
