Cops: Boy, 14, was driving drunk with intoxicated dad in car
WILKES-BARRE — Police have charged a 14-year-old Pennsylvania boy with driving drunk while his father, who was even more intoxicated, was a passenger.
WNEP-TV reports the boy was stopped for driving erratically by Wilkes-Barre police on Wednesday night. His blood-alcohol content was .106 percent, more than the state’s .08-percent limit for adult drivers — and five times the .02-percent limit for teen motorists.
Police have charged his father, 34-year-old Ramon Calva-Marin, with child endangerment and corruption of minors. Police say he was three times drunker than the law allows for drivers.
Police aren’t releasing the name of the boy, who was released to a sober family member and will be prosecuted in juvenile court.
His dad faces a preliminary hearing June 14, according to online court records, which don’t list a defense attorney.
