MOUNT PLEASANT, Wis. (AP) — Police in southeastern Wisconsin say a 15-year-old boy is accused of driving drunk with a baby in the back seat.
Mount Pleasant police say the baby’s mother and another teen in the car were also intoxicated. Sgt. Eric Relich says police responded to a report of a reckless driver at about 10:30 p.m. on Sunday. Relich says someone saw the driver swerving and driving into oncoming traffic.
The car stopped near a gas station and responding officers say they found the 15-year-old behind the wheel. WITI-TV reports Relich says the 19-year-old mother of the 5-month-old baby was so intoxicated she couldn’t stand up straight.
Authorities say beer bottles were found next to the baby’s car seat. The teen driver was taken into custody.
