12-Year-Old Caught Driving Drunk

 

A 12-year-old Minnesota girl was cited for drunk driving after police say her 19-year-old accomplice gave her the keys to a vehicle and asked for a ride home.

Police say the unidentified pre-teen was intoxicated when they arrived at the scene of an accident.

The passenger in the vehicle, 19-year-old Benjamin Repinski, was arrested after authorities say he told them he met the young girl at a party and asked her to drive him home.

He says however that when the 12-year-old mistook the gas pedal for the brake and hit a highway sign, he took over and mistakenly hit a shed.

When officers arrived the girl refused a test but was later detained and found to have a BAC of 0.09%.

She has been released to the care of her mother and could be charged with a DWI.

Repinkski faces charges of underage drinking, drinking and driving and allowing an unlicensed person to drive
