A father is facing charges after allegedly allowing his 9-year-old daughter to drive their van to a store because he was too drunk to drive himself there.
WDIV-TV reports the girl was sitting on a booster seat when she pulled up to the gas station / convenience store around 3:00 a.m. on October 8th.
Surveillance video on WDIV's website shows the girl carefully driving, and then getting out of the car with her 39-year-old father, Shawn Weimer.
Someone saw the little girl and called 911.
The father now faces felony child abuse charges.
Tuesday, a Woodhaven District Court judge ordered Weimer to not have contact with his daughter.
