10 year old refuses to ride with parents because they were drunk and smoking pot
MONACA, Pa., Oct. 18 (UPI) -- A Pennsylvania couple have been charged with drunken driving after their 10-year-old son refused to ride with them, fearing for his safety, police said.
Kenneth Sutton, 41, and his wife, Paula, 40, of Monaca, Pa., were charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or controlled substances and with child endangerment, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
The case caught police attention after a motorist saw the couple in their two vehicles stopped on a highway and their son leaving the scene.
The motorist called police, who picked up the boy running along the highway.
The unidentified boy told police his father had been drinking and was trying to light a pipe containing marijuana when he crashed into a guard rail, police said.
The boy's mother, who had been traveling in a car in front of them, tried to get the boy to ride with her, but he refused because she too had been drinking, police said.
The boy was not injured.

Hope that kid was okay when he got home.And Shepards we shall be,
for thee, My Lord, for thee,
Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
And teeming with souls will it ever be.
In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.

With a "child endangerment" charge, and with the good sense this kid showed, I'm wondering if he was allowed to go stay with a relative of his choosing.\\` ` ` ` < ` )___/\
