News: Mom Too High to Drive – Lets 6-year old take the Wheel

"Mom made me drive because she was too sleepy," a 6-year-old Coatesville, Penn., girl told local police when she was pulled over. The girl said her mom asked her to drive their Dodge Durango SUV because she was too sleepy to maneuver the vehicle.

Police could not believe their eyes when they spotted a little head peering over the steering wheel and child-like hands tightly gripping it. After pulling over the SUV, the officers saw 30-year-old Lakisha Hogue, the little girl's mother, laughing in the passenger seat. In between her hysterics, Hogue managed to drum up the story that she was merely teaching her daughter how to drive. The officers didn't buy it. They suspected that either drugs or alcohol was involved. When the precocious 6-year-old called her aunt from the scene, the officers overheard the little girl admit that her mom had been "smoking that smelly stuff again."
