SARASOTA, Fla. - Two Florida grandparents have been arrested after police say they hooked their granddaughter's plastic toy car to their SUV and gave her a ride.
A Sarasota County deputy said he spotted the 7-year-old wearing a bathing suit and no helmet as she was towed behind the SUV Sunday. Her toy car was tied to a trailer hitch with dog leashes. She was not harmed.
Paul Berloni was charged with driving under the influence, child endangerment and driving with a suspended license.
Belinda Berloni faces a child endangerment charge. Both admitted they had been drinking. Belinda said they were just having fun and had been towing the child all day.
The couple remained in jail without bail.
