Listen folks, driving drunk is a terrible idea. Designating a sober driver while you're throwin' 'em back? That's a great idea, except when that sober driver is your ten-year-old grandchild.
Police in Kenner, Louisiana arrested Brenda Byrd for letting her ten-year-old grandson drive her and her friend home after a "spirited" Tuesday night. Apparently these ladies got hammered and decided that a sober designated driver was in order. Normally, that sounds like a pretty responsible decision on their part, except that the designated driver could barely see over the steering wheel.
According to Kenner Police, witnesses called 911 after seeing an SUV traveling very slowly down the road, swerving in and out of its lane. The police showed up, saw the little kid behind the wheel, questioned the two drunken ladies, and made the arrests.
Police charged the two women with contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile and allowing an unlicensed driver to operate a vehicle. Not only that, but the police took Byrd's grandchildren into protected custody.
When will people learn that small children shouldn't drive?
