A North Carolina mother was arrested, kept in custody for hours and charged with child abuse for letting her 11-year-old son drive a golf cart.
Julie Mall, from Charlotte, was on vacation on Bald Head Island with her husband and children, and she let her son drive them back from the beach to their rental home.
An officer spotted the underage driver and confronted the family.
Mall told the Charlotte Observer that she admitted she was wrong and was aware that the legal age for driving a golf cart on the vacation island – which doesn’t allow cars – is 16.
