Police find young boy in driver's seat and grandfather two-and-a-half times over limit.
An Auckland grandfather was two-and-a-half times over the legal alcohol limit when he let his 7-year-old grandson drive his car - a situation police say is becoming more common.
The man, 49, who has interim name suppression, appeared in Auckland District Court yesterday and pleaded guilty to drink-driving, dangerous driving and neglect of a child.
The man was pulled over by police in Auckland's Mt Roskill at lunchtime on January 18.
According to court documents, the 7-year-old was in the driver's seat. The man had a breath-alcohol level of 1059 micrograms of alcohol per litre of breath. The legal limit is 400mcg.

An aerial operation by police has uncovered 1737 cannabis plants in the Wanganui area and 2344 in Ruapehu.
Central Districts police say information from the public was a major factor in the success of the crackdown which saw a total of 10,224 plants recovered - 90 plants up on last year's haul.
Of the total number of plants discovered, 5918 were from the aerial operation, with the other 4306 coming from search warrants.
Among those warrants was one executed in Waverley, which led to a significant drug seizure.
