Drunk Woman Lets 10 Year Old Grandson Drive Her Home

Miami, FL (PRWEB) July 22, 2013

According to the Times Picayune Greater New Orleans article, Intoxicated woman had 10-year-old grandson drive home, Kenner Police say, on 6/12, a drunk 54-year old woman, Brenda Byrd of Kenner, Louisiana, allowed her 10-year old grandson to drive her and two others home. Byrd said she was too drunk to drive.

The 10-year old boy was driving a sport utility vehicle recklessly on Interstate 10 when witnesses called the police saying the vehicle was traveling slowly down the highway and onto the Williams Boulevard exit in Kenner, Louisiana. The SUV reduced its speed even more and proceeded to swerve in and out of the roadway while driving toward 32nd Street then on to Arkansas Avenue. Eventually, Kenner Police stopped the vehicle in the 1300 block of 31st Street.

Fortunately, no one was injured, but alcohol abuse can cause serious health issues up to and including death for drinkers and innocent bystanders. In fact, about 11,000 people are killed each year by alcohol-impaired drivers - nearly one third of all traffic related deaths in the United States, according to The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The article,Intoxicated woman had 10-year-old grandson drive home, stated that Byrd and her friend, Sheila Joiner, 48, were booked with contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile and allowing an unlicensed driver to operate a motor vehicle.
