Cops: Drunken Driver Was 13 Years Old

It's not usual for a driver charged with drunken driving to be released into the custody of her mother, but nor is it usual for an accused driver to be 13 years old. Police say an officer making a traffic stop in eastern Wisconsin yesterday found the intoxicated teen behind the wheel. The officer stopped the vehicle in Manitowoc shortly before midnight because its headlights were off. Police say five other juveniles, 14 and under, were along for the ride. The driver faces charges of operating while impaired, reports WOMT-AM. Police say she took her mom's car without permission. (More weird crimes stories.)
