Mother Arrested After Allowing Her 8-Year-Old To Drive While She Was Drunk

It's great to let your children branch out and learn new things, but I think this mother may have taken it too far.

Milwaukee resident Carrie L. Bernard had a few too many drinks the other night. She was so visually impaired the 37-year-old decided to set her 8-year-old son on her lap and have him steer.

Officers from the Milwaukee County pulled Bernard over, and she failed her sobriety test (not shocking)

She was charged with her third DUI offense, and because the minor was under 16 years of age the charges will be more severe.

Hollywood Unlocked reported her son, cried to the officers and told them that he “didn’t want to go to jail,” has now been turned over to Child Protective Services.
