Walker, La (NBC33) — Over the weekend, police stopped a nine year-old boy driving a truck on I-12 while his dad was passed out drunk in the passenger seat. Also, the boy's 4 year-old sister was also in the car.
State police managed to pull over the truck after another driver spotted the car driving erratically and called 911.
They said 28 year-old Billy Joe Madden was passed out drunk while the 9 year-old boy was driving them from Hattiesburg, Mississippi to Dallas, Texas.
The kids were taken into protective custody. Madden is facing multiple charges.
