Father Arrested After Letting 9-Year-Old Daughter Drive Car

Father Arrested After Letting 9-Year-Old Daughter Drive Car
Lake County Sheriff’s Office

In our experience, parents generally let their small children drive when they’re too drunk to drive themselves. But a father in Ohio was apparently stone cold sober when he let his 9-year-old daughter drive the family car. Can’t blame alcohol for this one, dude. That dumb decision was all yours.

According to the Lake County Sheriff’s Office, 23-year-old Jaron McGee was giving his child a driving lesson in the parking lot of Headlands State Park when she lost control of their 1998 Honda and plowed into a tree. Now McGee is facing child endangerment and wrongful entrustment charges.

Family members took the girl from the scene of the accident before police arrived and insist she wasn’t injured, but deputies are following up to make sure that’s the case.

Meanwhile, McGee, who also escaped injury, was thrown in county jail. At the time of his arrest, police discovered that he has outstanding felony and misdemeanor warrants in addition to being a terrible driving instructor.
