Drunk dad makes nine-year-old designated driver
A father from Michigan has been arrested after drunkenly making his nine-year-old daughter his designated driver… and then boasting about it on camera.
Shawn Weimer has appeared in court after CCTV footage emerged showing the child parking his van at a petrol station in Brownstown Township.
Once inside the station Weimer started bragging about his daughter's driving saying: "Nine years old. Nine! Gas, brake, listen, we're leaving, and she's driving. I'm drunk."
Police were called and soon pulled the underage driver over, prompting her to ask why and add that she was "driving good".
The man could be charged with felony child abuse and sentenced to 15 years in jail, if found guilty.
