KENNER - Kenner police say officers responding to a call about a sport utility vehicle being driven recklessly on Interstate 10 found a 10-year-old boy behind the wheel when they pulled the vehicle over later on a city street.

Two women in the vehicle were arrested. Police said both allegedly said that they told the10-year-old to drive because they were intoxicated.

The child's grandmother, 54-year-old Brenda Byrd, was arrested Wednesday morning, along with 48-year-old Sheila Joiner. They were booked with contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile and allowing an unlicensed driver to operate a motor vehicle.

The young driver and a 15-year-old passenger were placed in protective custody and later released to family members.
