A Reno police officer who saw a sport utility vehicle weaving in a travel lane, driving slowly and stopping for no reason wasn't prepared for what he found when he pulled the vehicle over.

      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

The driver was 7 years old and, according to the police report, the dad was in the passenger seat, drunk.

The officer says 37-year-old Alfredo Martinez said he was teaching the boy how to drive because he was too drunk to do so.

The stop occurred on a ramp to busy U.S. 395.

Martinez was booked on one felony count of child endangerment and is being held under $3,500 bail.

The boy was taken home to his mother.
