10-year-old boy drove SUV recklessly, Louisiana police say

Police in Louisiana say a call about an SUV being driven recklessly on Interstate 10 led them to pull over a 10-year-old boy who was driving.

A Kenner police news release says the boy's grandmother and another woman in the vehicle were arrested early Wednesday when the car was pulled over on a city street. Police say they told officers that they had the boy drive because they were intoxicated.

The child's grandmother, 54-year-old Brenda Byrd, and 48-year-old Sheila Joiner were booked with contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile and allowing an unlicensed driver to operate a motor vehicle.

The young driver and a 15-year-old passenger were later released to family members.

Sgt. Brian McGregor says the women were in custody Wednesday afternoon, awaiting a court appearance. No attorneys were listed in their booking records.
