Why? Because this dopey couple thought it would be a good idea to attach their 7-year-old granddaughter's plastic toy car to the back of their SUV and give her a ride.
Securely fastening the Hot Wheels car to a trailer hitch with a couple of dog leashes, the pair towed the girl behind them at speeds of up to 10 miles per hour.
Although they didn't think to provide their granddaughter with a helmet, the Berlonis did ensure that she was wearing a bathing suit. Presumably so that if the entire contraption plunged into a lake, she'd be able to push 4,000lb of metal off her and swim merrily to the surface.
Did I mention that the Berlonis had been drinking?
The hapless pair were arrested in Sarasota, Florida, and charged with several counts of child endangerment, driving under the influence, and driving with a suspended license.
The driver of the Hot Wheels car was given a brake.

I can't see anything wrong with this plan. Nope, nothing at all.
