Police Say Drunken Woman Let Son, 14, Drive

Nebraska authorities said a 37-year-old woman put her 14-year-old behind the wheel because she was too drunk to drive.

The woman was arrested Saturday after Washington County Sheriff's deputies stopped a vehicle on U.S. Highway 75 because of erratic driving. Deputies found the woman's 14-year-old son in the driver's seat and two other minors - ages 14 and 17 - in the car.

The woman was arrested and has been charged with three counts of child neglect and one count of allowing a minor to drive. The sheriff's department said the children in the vehicle were turned over to an uncle in Tekamah, Nebraska. The woman was still being held in the Washington County jail early yesterday morning on $1,000 bond.
