13-Year Old Boy Driver Stopped In SeaTac; Was Driving His Drunk Dad
The Washington State Patrol is reporting that on Sunday (June 5), a Trooper stopped a vehicle in SeaTac for erratic braking and an equipment violation, only to discover that the car was being driven by a 13-year old boy, whose drunk dad was riding as passenger.
Police say that just before Noon Sunday, a silver Lincoln was traveling east on S. 166th Street in an “erratic fashion.”
The trooper observed that the vehicle had a broken windshield and the driver looked to be “very youthful” in appearance.
As the vehicle traveled, the driver was “violently stomping the brakes” and not using his lane properly.
The trooper pulled the vehicle over, and it quickly became apparent that the passenger, a 40-year old SeaTac man, was the intoxicated father of the 13-year old driver.
The drunk dad was booked into King County jail for investigation of Reckless Endangerment and Allowing an Unauthorized Person to Drive. The 13-year old driver faces no charges and was released to his mother.
