Drunk Aussie lets boy drive him home


Police on Friday charged a drunk man after pulling over a car on Australia’s Gold Coast to allegedly find a 7-year-old boy driving him home at 3 a.m.

A patrol car stopped the vehicle early Friday after it went by without its headlights on, to find the boy at the wheel and the man in the passenger seat.

“A man has been charged with serious traffic offenses after police intercepted a car allegedly being driven by a 7-year-old boy at Surfers Paradise in the early hours of this morning,” police said.

The 41-year-old was charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and being an adult in charge under the influence of alcohol.
