POLK COUNTY, WI (WCMH) — A drunk Wisconsin couple is facing felony charges after allegedly letting a nine-year-old girl drive them home in an attempt to avoid a DUI.

According to KMSP in Minneapolis, Amanda Eggert and Jason Roth were pulled over on February 1 after a 911 caller reported a pickup truck driving erratically and weaving in and out of traffic.

When Polk County deputies pulled the car over, they found Eggert’s nine-year-old daughter behind the wheel and an 11-month-old baby strapped in a car seat.

The couple appeared in court Friday and pleaded not guilty to charges including child neglect and reckless endangerment, according to KMSP.

Jail records show both Eggert and Roth remain in jail awaiting trial.
