      Father on suspended driver's license allows 5-year-old to steer

      A 28-year-old man of Bloomfield Hills was reported swerving in his lane with a young child appearing to be steering the car in his lap.

      A 28-year-old man of Bloomfield Hills was reported swerving on the road with a young child in his lap who appeared to be steering the vehicle.

      A witness called the dispatch center on Monday to report the weaving of the black BMW that was heading northbound on County Rd. 641 near Donner Rd.

      Deputies located the BMW at the intersection of Co. Rd. 641 and M-204 where they saw the child on the drivers lap appearing to be steering the vehicle.

      Authorities stopped the car near the intersection and the driver and young child were found not wearing seatbelts. Deputies then learned the man was driving on a suspended driver's license.

      The young child and vehicle were turned over to the wife.

      The Bloomfield Hills man will appear in the 86th District Court for driving on a suspended driver's license.
