Tampa Police have arrested a man they say sat drunk in the passenger seat of his SUV while he let his 12-year-old son drive.
Authorities say the boy hit a pregnant woman's car while making a turn.
Both vehicles had minor damage Saturday. No injuries were reported, but the woman asked to be taken to a hospital as a precaution. She was eight months pregnant.
Police say the boy's father, 32-year-old Adrian Kegler, was clearly intoxicated. He wasn't given a breathalyzer test because he wasn't driving.
Before being released on bail, Kegler was charged with culpable negligence with actual injury. Kegler also was charged with permitting an unauthorized person to drive and child neglect.
A woman who answered the phone at Kegler's house declined comment.
