Ha! And they totally bought it, too!

At least it wasn't a little girl driving.

No matter what your age, you shouldn't be driving with a wobbly pop in your car.

that would work down here...

Resourceful gentlemen wants to do the socially responsible thing and not drive after drinking. But no, that's not good enough. The long arm of the law still finds a way to make him out to be the bad guy. Sometimes you just can't win.

The boy says he thought it was just a harmless driving lesson, and dad was in control of the vehicle at all times.

"I just pretended I was driving," he said. "I was holding the steering wheel, and he just moved his hands and my hands."


That's no way to keep your dad out of a DUI son... Although his dad got arrested for child endagerment and no insurance, so I wonder if DUI or child endagerment is the worse offense...

I woulda blamed it all on the kid. Tell the cop the kid is holding you hostage. Kids are farkin crazy these days, he would buy it.

Who is driving?

Oh my God 11 year old is driving!

How can that be?!

11-year-old driving drunk father home > Drunk father driving and killing himself and 11-year-old

And no, not being drunk isn't an option if you have an 11-year-old.

I would NEVER let my 11 yr.old drive if I were in no condition to.

According to Metro, the car was stopped after making an abrupt turn into a dirt lot. An Officer reportedly walked up to find Dad in the passenger seat and his son in the drivers seat.
Sounds like the classic "Switcheroo" haha

I had been driving tractors and farm trucks for about a year when I turned 11. I didn't drive on public roads till I was 13 but did that for 3 years before I got a license. It would have been just as safe as when I was 16 for me to drive people home. If the kid was doing a moderately decent job of driving 3 cheers for them both.

One time, my dad and I were fly fishing and we'd walked quite a ways downstream from where we'd started. I went to the truck to get lunch and dad said, "You should move the truck closer." Being 11 or 12, I knew better than to check for sarcasm. I hiked a mile or so back to the truck, fired it up, and drove to a pullout close to where we were fishing. At the end of the day, dad started hiking back to where he'd parked that morning. "Where are you going? Truck's right there." ... "Oh, shiat. I didn't think you'd really do it. I was just kidding!"

But I knew I was in the clear. Dad told me to move the truck. I moved the truck. He couldn't back down because then I'd be free to question anything he told me to do. "Why didn't you mow the lawn?" "I thought you were kidding."

Dad was very careful about what he said after that day.

Just say the kid played GTA one too many times.


On a related note. My mom had MS and one night she and I were at dinner and she started getting dizzy and couldn't see. So I drove us home. I was 10 at the time.
 
2009-07-15 01:17:11 PM  
My dad did that with my older brother, who was about 11 years old at the time. Both parents had been at a party and were very drunk, and I and my three brothers were pretty young at the time. This was about fifty years ago.

My mom and her favorite cousin (they were both black sheep of the family) went to the local club one night. We were on vacation in Canada, around 1970, I was 10 or so. Her cousin was so hammered he passed out in the car, in the driveway. So about 9:oo am I got up, saw his car there and ran to see him. After waking him, we talked for a few minutes and he wanted to go to the store. He said he was in no condition to drive and told me to get behind the wheel. He would show me how to drive!! The local store is about 4 miles from the cottage. I had a blast.

EXACTLY what I thought of when I read the headline.

Maxor: If the kid was doing a moderately decent job of driving 3 cheers for them both.

Th kid was driving poorly enough that he got stopped by a cop, so I'm betting 'no' on that one.

Admittedly this was the better choice of the two obvious ones for the father, but he shoulda gone with option (c) call a cab, as he was in no state to supervise his son.

crm114: 11-year-old driving drunk father home > Drunk father driving and killing himself and 11-year-old

And no, not being drunk isn't an option if you have an 11-year-old a kid of any age.


FTFM

Well, would it have been stranger if the 11 year old was too drunk to drive as well?
 
2009-07-15 03:51:49 PM  
Dad?
 
2009-07-15 04:01:17 PM  
FTFA: "The two were apparently on their way back home from a nearby Smith's grocery store."

So, either Dad drove to the store drunk (unless the kid drove there, too), or Las Vegas has bars inside grocery stores. Neither would surprise me. But if it's the latter, let me know ASAP. It's gonna take me a while to pack up so I can move to Las Vegas.

Coming from the country, I've got to say it's happened before... a time or two. At least there, community teamwork still thrives.

Just dropping an opposite :)


cheers.
