9 Year Old Daughter is Designated Driver for Drunk Dad

Posted on October 19, 2011


A father in a Detroit suburb faces charges of child abuse after making his 9-year-old daughter drive him to a service station because he was too drunk to take the wheel, The ABC reports.

When police stopped the car after a 911 call, they were surprised to see the young girl sitting behind the wheel, in a booster seat but still able to operate the van’s accelerator and brakes. They were even more surprised at the 9-year-old’s reaction.

“She looks at the uniformed police officer, and says ‘What did you stop me for? I was driving good,’” Brownstown Detective Lt. Robert Grant said.

To be fair, she probably was probably a safer option than the deadbeat dad.
