A 40-year-old SeaTac man was jailed on suspicion of reckless endangerment Sunday after State Patrol troopers stopped his silver Lincoln on South 166th Street in SeaTac.
Behind the wheel was the man's 13-year-old son. According to the State Patrol, dad was drunk, so son was driving.
Having stopped the car at 12 p.m., the trooper observed the vehicle had a broken windshield and the driver was very young looking, according to a press statement. As the car traveled the driver was "violently stomping the brakes."
The dad was charged with reckless endangerment and allowing an unauthorized person to drive, which, frankly, is still better than a DUI.
