William Poffenbarger: Arrested for having a 14-year old drive him on a beer run

TEQUESTA, Fla. - A Tequesta man was arrested after having a 14-year-old drive him to the store to buy a four-pack of beer, according to the arrest report.

A police officer pulled over the car after observing the front seat passenger was not wearing his seat belt.

William Poffenbarger, 21, told police, "he did not have a valid license and was teaching the minor how to drive his vehicle, because he couldn't."  He also told the officer they went to the convenience store where he purchased a four-pack of beer.

Poffenbarger faces contributing to the delinquency of a minor and child cruelty charges, according to the arrest affidavit.
