Police: Boy, 13, used as designated driver

October 6, 2009 12:38:22 PM PDT
Police say a Marin County couple with several drunken-driving arrests between them let a 13-year-old boy drive them home to avoid another DUI. San Anselmo Police Sgt. Rob Schneider says the incident occurred after the three had dinner at a downtown restaurant Sunday night.

Officers investigating a vehicle stalled on a major thoroughfare discovered the underaged driver. Schneider says the boy claimed he stopped because he was "freaked out" and refused to drive further.

Heather Choulos, 32, of Mill Valley was charged Monday with child endangerment and contributing to the delinquency of a minor -- both misdemeanors. A message left at a number listed for Choulos was not immediately returned.

Her boyfriend has not been charged.
