Wis. teen calls in drunk-driving dad while riding in backseat

itemprop

This teen has some serious guts, but you can't blame him for finally snapping at his father who has been what his mom calls a "functioning alcoholic" for 22 years. Dang.

The 16-year-old teen called the Wauwatosa Police Department Friday afternoon from the backseat of the car his dad was driving drunk. He reported his dad's reckless driving and police found the 45-year-old father and his family shortly after.

The man had a blood-alcohol content of 0.30, almost four times the legal driving limit. Police found him lying on the ground outside his car near an elementary school that was just letting out. His wife said he had a pint of vodka that day and when officers asked him where he was going, he had already forgotten that he had been driving at all.

This teen deserves best son of the year. We just hope his father appreciates it.
