Teaching son how to drive when she’s too drunk to.
Police said Heather Howe, 35, told officers who arrived shortly before 8 p.m. that she wanted to show her 10-year-old son how to back up her car. She placed the boy on her lap and put the car in reverse, police said.
The car backed rapidly in a clockwise circle, hitting several objects before coming to rest against a stone wall across the street, police said.
Howe was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving and child endangerment, police said, and released on $25,000 bail.
