    Default Dad uses 7-year-old son as designated driver

    OCTOBER 31--Meet Alfredo Martinez. While the Nevada man should be saluted for knowing that he was too drunk to get behind the wheel last night, he probably should not have tabbed his seven-year-old son as his designated driver. Martinez, 37, was arrested after Reno cops spotted his car weaving across lanes and stopping suddenly. When officers pulled over the vehicle before it could enter a highway, they found a plastered Martinez in the passenger seat and his son behind the wheel. Martinez, pictured below in a mug shot snapped at the Washoe County lockup, directed the boy to drive him home because he was too drunk to do it himself, cops said. Martinez is facing a felony child endangerment rap. (1 page) http://www.thesmokinggun.com/archive/1031062reno1.html

    p.s. this is the second story of its kind but is NOT a double post.

    Sigh. Poor kid. I hope they put him in foster care.

    I'm not sure that would be an improvement.
