Kid needs some serious parenting... If mom and dad own the car which is likely they should be arrested as well.

OK, psychiatrists, psychologists and social workers of the Astoria, Oregon aria, this boy needs a major intervention. Now go to work and make him right.

he offending lad did three stupid things: 1- He drank too much! 2- He drove while intoxicated! 3-He ran away from the scene. .4- He compounded it, by confessing on Facebook perhaps hoping to be turned in!
