A New Jersey man was so intoxicated that he could not remember where he lived and asked his 11-year-old son to drive him home, police say.

On the drive home to Trenton, Garcia became disoriented and too intoxicated to continue driving, so he asked his 11-year-old son to take the wheel.
The pair were in Trenton, but Garcia could not remember where he lived so he allegedly asked the child to drive. His son was too frightened to drive the car, so the scared child called his grandmother.
