A sheriffâ€™s deputy pulled over a car in New Mexico Thursday morning, and found a wasted 13-year-old boy driving, and his inebriated grandmother in the back seat.
The deputy had pulled the car over for weaving all over the road, but it didn’t pull over at first.
When it finally did, the shocked deputy found out that the driver was just 13 years old, unlicensed and quite drunk.
His grandmother, 52-year-old Sanjuana Mercado-Mendez, was sitting comfortably numb in the back seat.
She didn’t answer a single question the deputies asked her.
According to the report, the grandmother stumbled to his squad car reeking of alcohol and slurred speech.
At least two open cans of beer were found in the car.
She was taken to the county jail at around 3 a.m. and charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor, child abuse, and possession of an open container of alcohol in a motor vehicle.
The 13-year-old was also taken into custody and refused a blood test. Regardless, he’s now been charged with aggravated DWI, failing to yield to an emergency vehicle, driving without a license, failing to maintain lanes, and having an open alcoholic beverage in a motor vehicle.
