Cops: Boy, 14, was driving drunk with intoxicated dad in car
WILKES-BARRE, Pa. - Police have charged a 14-year-old Pennsylvania boy with driving drunk while his even more intoxicated father rode in the passenger seat.
WNEP-TV reports the boy was stopped by Wilkes-Barre (WILKS'-ba-ree) police for driving erratically on Wednesday night. His blood-alcohol content was .106 percent, more than the state's .08 percent limit for adult drivers.

The boy was released to a sober family member and will be prosecuted in juvenile court.
His father faces a preliminary hearing June 14. Online court records don't list an attorney for him to comment on the charges.
