A Michigan man had his nine-year-old daughter drive him to the store because he had been drinking.

After receiving a phone call from someone who saw the two at a gas station, a detective in the area spotted the girl sitting behind the wheel in her booster seat just before three A.M.

The girl told the officer that her father had let her drive before and that he had been drinking whiskey all night.

The father has since been charged with two counts of child abuse and for being a habitual offender. If sentenced, he could face up to 15 years in prison.
