Drunk Grandparents Tow Granddaughter in Toy Car Behind SUV

You probably won't see Paul and Belinda Berloni listed on any childminding awards this year.

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.
