TAMPA, Fla. (KRON) — A Florida math teacher was arrested for letting a 14 year-old boy drive her car while she was drinking.
Police stopped the vehicle around 11:15 p.m. Sunday night because they thought the driver was drunk.
“It turned out, the man behind the wheel was actually a 14 year-old boy. The passenger, a 32-year-old woman who wanted that child to drive her to Waffle House,” authorities said.
There was also an open beer bottle in a cup holder, according to police.
Virgin told police she had five drinks and was too drunk to drive.
The teenage boy is her boyfriend’s son, according to police.
