Michigan Boy, 13, Driving for Drunk Dad Charged With DWI

CLIO, Mich.
A police officer checking on a truck that got stuck in the mud at a city park was startled to find a 13-year-old boy behind the wheel.

The officer also was surprised that the boy appeared to be drunk.

So did the teen's father, who was riding in the front seat. He told police that he had turned over the driving duties to his son because he'd had too much to drink.

Open containers of beer and liquor were found in the vehicle, said Clio Police Chief James McLellan.

"[The boy] even said he didn't want to drive because he was too drunk," McLellan told The Flint Journal for a story published Thursday.

The father, a 41-year-old Flint-area man, is facing several misdemeanor counts, including child endangerment, allowing an intoxicated person to drive his vehicle and allowing an unlicensed minor to drive, police said.

The boy has been petitioned into juvenile court on charges that include driving while intoxicated, police said.

The pair were arrested the night of Nov. 8. They apparently were trying to get home when they turned into the park to turn around. The truck rolled off the pavement and became stuck in the muddy soil.


I've got nothing witty to say. Wow.

It's nice to see a father who wants to spend time with his kids.

Im reminded of the White Sox thug fan and his son that stormed the field to beat up the Royals first base coach.

WTF.

maybe the guy that started the thread about teaching your kids to drink try this out. But I hope he doesn't.

When I was growing up, my dad didn't mind if I drank at home, especially if it was with him. He tried to teach me to be responsible with it. Being responsible didn't include going somewhere else and getting so schnockered that niether of us could drive (and I was probably over 13).
BTW, I didn't start the "Teach your kids to drink" thread.

I know that's not what that guy was talking about. It sounded like he wanted to be responsible as well. Just a joke.

On the other hand, I can remember driving dad home from a party before I had my license. He was pretty hammered and gave up the keys willingly. I was sober and insisted.

Is a horse and buggy really considered driving? ROFL
