Alleged drunk father arrested after allowing 8-year-old to drive vehicle

An alleged drunk father was arrested after it was found that his 8-year-old son was driving his vehicle down Interstate 12 while he slept.

A motorist passed the vehicle that was driving erratically down the roadway and notified police officials. When police pulled the vehicle over they found that the 8-year-old was driving, the father was in the passenger seat, and the man’s 4-year-old daughter was in the back seat.

At the time, they were traveling from Dallas, Texas to Mississippi. The man was arrested and charged with two counts of child desertion, parent allowing a minor to drive, open container, and two counts of child restraint. The children were put into the custody of a family member after the arrest.
