April 30, 2012  | 

Two grandparents are accused of getting drunk and using their SUV to tow their 7-year-old granddaughter in a toy plastic car.

Paul J. Berloni, 49, of the 3300 block of Clark Road East in Sarasota, is charged with driving under the influence, child endangerment and driving with a suspended license. Sheriff's deputies say he has been convicted three times for DUI.

Belinda Jean Berloni, 47, of the same address, faces a child endangerment charge. Deputies say the child was not injured.

Too much booze strikes again! Three DUI convictions and a suspended license sure was effective in keeping this idiot from getting behind the wheel again. The judge ought to send him away for a good long while for this one. They sure set a good example for that seven year old girl. Sad.

And they want legalize drugs in this country. We have enough problems with nitwits like this. How about one year in jail and loss of license for 5 years?
