Mike’s the Stupid News: Grandparents Jailed for Towing Granddaughter behind SUV
A pair of drunken Florida grandparents didn’t want to risk putting their seven-year-old granddaughter in the car with them as they drove home, so they put her in her own toy car and towed her behind theirs.
Paul and Belinda Berloni were charged with child endangerment after cops spotted the little girl riding in the Hot Wheels, which was tied to the SUV with a dog leash. According to the police report, Paul — who was driving at about 10 miles per hour — acknowledged that he’d been drinking, and that he did not have a valid license. Grandma Belinda was also wasted, and admitted she knew the stunt was dangerous, but said they were “just having fun.”
