Young Driver
(2007-12-27)
(wgvu) - Authorities say a 32-year-old man got
drunk Christmas Eve, then put his 9-year-old son in the driver's
seat of their pickup to work the gas and brakes while he steered.
The Lansing State Journal says Jonathan D. Olson of Hamlin
Township was arraigned Wednesday in Eaton County District Court on
child abuse, drunken driving-third offense and other charges. A
judge set bond at $50,000 and scheduled a January 9 preliminary
examination.
Authorities say an off-duty police officer saw the pickup
driving erratically on Monday night. They say a sheriff's deputy
stopped the truck in Eaton Rapids Township, and the boy said they
had driven about seven miles.
Olson was in jail Wednesday and unavailable for comment.
