A drunk father allegedly allowed his 8 year-old son to drive his pick-up truck on a southeast Louisiana highway on Saturday while he slept, until patrol officers pulled over the boy, police said.
The boy was driving the Chevrolet truck on Interstate 12 near the town of Holden, with his father in the passenger seat and his 4 year-old sister in the back seat, Louisiana State Police said in a statement. A passing motorist noticed the pick-up truck was being driven erratically and called police.
When Louisiana state troopers pulled over the truck in Livingston Parish, they found the 8 year-old boy behind the wheel and interviewed the father, 28 year-old Billy Joe Madden of Hattiesburg, Mississippi, police said.
Joel Watts is from Louisiana but when the drunks began to outnumber the sane people he moved to West Virginia. Only those who, like Lot’s wife, have looked back at Sodom and been frozen into besotted pillars of salt have remained in that godforsaken hovel of ignorance and misdeed. Like Billy Joe Madden.
