Drunk Florida Grandparents Tow Granddaughter Behind SUV in a Plastic Hot Wheels Car
Paul J. Berloni, 49, and Belinda Jean Berloni, 47, were watching their granddaughter for the day when they decided to latch two dog leashes and tie one end onto the trailer hitch of the SUV and the other to the toy car. Paul was driving the SUV, Belinda was in the back of the cargo area cheering the girl on, and their little granddaughter was in the toy car wearing a swimsuit, not protective gear. The SUV was driving 5 to 10 mph.
According to the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, someone saw the incident and called the police. After officers arrived, Paul admitted he had been drinking and that his driver's license was suspended. He has three previous DUIs.

Belinda was charged with child endangerment, as was Paul, who was also charged with DUI and driving with a suspended license.
