11-year-old girl charged with DUI after chase

ORANGE BEACH, Ala. (AP) — Police who chased a car for miles along a highway at speeds up to 100 mph said the driver was drunk, hardly a rarity in this resort town. But there was more: When they looked inside the flipped vehicle with guns drawn, they found an 11-year-old girl at the wheel.


I'm a little curious where her parents are during all this, and whether this is something she does all the time.

And here's an unfortunate juxtaposition of that news story with a beer ad:

Sorry to swear on your blog but WTF??? I can't believe this. I bet her parents were stoned and handed her the beer.

Her parents should be beaten with a baseball bat and locked up, and then their parental rights should be revoked.

I just spent a week for work in a neighborhood full of parents who had no clue what their kids were up to. Pisses me off.

Wow. She drives better drunk than some folks I know...:)

That's messed up. The world's gettin FedEx'ed straight to Hell in an Overnight Parcel box.

I recently heard of a woman who, after cheating on (and leaving) her Iraq-deployed hubbie, left her FOUR- AND TWO-YEAR-OLD kids at home because she wanted to go have a drunken fling with the guy she left her husband for.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, over?
