A drunken idiot has been arrested after his 7 year old son was allegedly caught at the wheel of his car at 3am in Surfers Paradise, on Queensland’s Gold Coast. He has been charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and adult in charge under the influence of alcohol.
The 41-year-old drunkard, who is from NSW, was riding in the passenger seat when a police patrol noticed the car swerving erratically and without headlights on, at 3am on Friday morning. Instead of being in bed, dreaming of being a superhero and only having to worry about going to school the next day, his 7 year old son was forced to attempt to drive his drunken idiot father home. I don’t know why the son was out with dad in the first place. How would he be able to get into the bar? Don’t tell me that the drunken idiot left his son outside, unattended, so that he could get his drink on…
Authorities are appalled at the drunken idiot’s stupidity, saying that children do not have the physical or the mental ability to control such as complex and heavy piece of machinery that is a car. The drunken idiot not only put his son and himself at risk of injury, but also other road users and pedestrians. I hope Mum or another relative slaps this drunkard silly!
The drunken idiot will face Southport Magistrates Court on July 3. The boy is now in the care of relatives, who had to travel from NSW after they learned of the incident.
