Here’s another news story from the region in which I live.  After reading my previous story and this one, you’ll think that all of Washington state is strange.  It’s not, but some of the people are.

The morning of July 3rd, at approximately 6:45 a.m., a 14-year-old boy suspected of drunk driving was arrested in Bellingham, WA after crashing into four cars in the parking lot of an apartment complex.  The youngster was trying to elude a State Trooper’s pursuit of him after the child was observed driving erratically and way under the speed limit.

Also in the car with him were two 12-year-olds, a 15-year-old and a 53-year-old man.  All of them were extremely drunk, with the exception of one of the 12-year-olds.

I guess the sober 12-year-old wasn’t their first choice as designated driver.  It’s unfortunate they chose the 14-year-old – he didn’t do a very good job because he was drunk.  Fortunately no one was seriously hurt.  The only person who disgusts me is the 53-year-old man.  Way to mentor children, dude.
