Drunk Uncle Hands Keys To 12-Year-Old

Police said a 29-year-old Eastpointe man handed over his car keys Sunday afternoon to his 12-year-old nephew because the man was drunk.

The boy -- after driving for a few miles -- pulled into a back driveway leading to his home on Frazho Road in Roseville and struck a trash bin and a parked car, police said.

The impact sent the parked car into the boy's 2-year-old brother.

The 2-year-old was taken to a local hospital to be treated for minor injuries, Local 4 reported.

No other injuries were reported.

Prosecutors said they will press charges against the Eastpointe man but have to review the laws to determine what punishment to pursue.
