Grandma just wanted to have a little party.
Problem was, once she was toasted Brenda Byrd and her friend Sheila Joiner realized they didn’t have a designated driver.
Byrd gave that some thought and, in her intoxicated state choose her ten year old grandson for the chore.
Police near Kenner, Louisiana got a call about an SUV weaving and being wreckless so they pulled it over.
The found the ten year old behind the wheel along with a 15 year old and the two women.
When they asked what was happening the wom en explained that were too drunk to drive and this seemed like the best option.
Byrd and Joiner were arrested on charges of contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile and allowing an unlicensed driver to operate a motor vehicle.
