Police catch seven-year-old boy driving drunken father home

Police in the Surfer's Paradise area on Australia's Gold Coast caught a seven-year-old boy driving his drunken father back to the hotel they were staying at in the small hours of the morning earlier this year.

Officials stopped a car they spotted travelling down the road with no lights on at 3am only to find Peter Sivewright drunk in the front passenger seat and his son sobbing hysterically behind the wheel.
