Wis. Police Arrest 13-Year-Old Drunken Driver

MANITOWOC, Wis. (AP) -- Manitowoc police say an officer making a traffic stop found an intoxicated driver behind the wheel -- and she was just 13 years old.

They say five other juveniles, 14 and under, were along for the ride.

Authorities say the officer stopped the vehicle shortly before midnight Wednesday because its headlights were off. Police Capt. Larry Zimney tells WOMT radio the girl was arrested and later released to her mother.

Police say one of the juvenile passengers was taken to the Sheboygan County juvenile detention center because of a pending court order.
