ONTARIO – A Canadian parent is facing legal trouble after police say they used beer as a booster seat for a toddler.
Police in Ontario tweeted out this photo of the traffic stop.
While they were talking to the driver, they noticed something odd about the young passenger.
They found the child was sitting on a 30-can case of beer. The driver was charged with failing to secure a toddler.
In Ontario, like in the U.S., children have to be in booster seats until they meet certain age and height requirements.
