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.

A nine year old driving a truck while his dad was sleeping because he was drunk? Its not easy driving a truck because it is so heavy and yet he let his 9 year old kid drove it? What if the truck got into an accident? It would be a total mess and it would cost you a lot for the accessories for trucks and repairs that you will be doing.
