When a police officer received a call about erratic driving on a rural road in Wisconsin, he didn’t expect to find a 9-year-old behind the wheel. But that’s exactly what happened.
Terrible mother Amanda Eggert and her equally terrible boyfriend Jason Roth are facing felony charges after allowing Eggert’s 9-year-old daughter to drive them home inside their pickup truck because they were too drunk to drive.
To make matters worse, the couple’s 11-month-old baby was also inside the truck. Deputy Jeff Hahn pulled the truck over and was shocked when he discovered who the driver was.
He told the court the following…
“As the nine-year-old exited the truck, it was still running and in drive when Mr. Roth was sitting in the truck by himself. He turned the ignition off and the truck began rolling backwards down the hill towards the river. I jumped into the truck to hit the brakes and put the truck in park.”
Yeah…that’s how plastered Roth and Eggert were. Roth’s initial breath test had him at .25, which is more than three times the legal limit.
According to the report, the 9-year-old had been driving the car for miles before the officer was able to track them down.
Thankfully, no injuries were reported, and the two children are staying with (hopefully) more responsible members of their family.
