ONTARIO, Canada — A father in Canada is under arrest after police say he used a case of beer as a booster seat for his 2-year-old child.

The Ontario Provincial Police tweeted that the dad was pulled over on Wednesday in North Perth, about two hours from Toronto, and his toddler was sitting on a case of beer in the front passenger seat.

The father was charged with failing to ensure his child was properly seat-belted. No word if child protective services are involved.

Under Canadian law, children under 40 pounds must be in a child seat, and kids under 8 years old must use a booster seat in a car.
