Police: Drunk Ohio man had boy, 9, drive him to gas station
TIFFIN, OH.- Police say an Ohio man was drunk when he had his 9-year-old neighbor drive him to a gas station to buy barbecue sauce for their chicken dinner.
A Tiffin police spokesman says that the boy drove the man to the gas station Saturday evening, but clerks wouldn't let the child drive home and reported the situation. Police say the 27-year-old man tried to drive home and was pulled over by officers.
Police say the man's blood-alcohol content was several times the legal limit. They say he faces several charges, including child endangering, operating a vehicle while intoxicated, refusing a chemical breath test and driving under suspension.
Police say the man had the child over for dinner, and the boy's parents didn't know the neighbor was drunk.
