Mom Used Kid As Designated Driver

AUGUST 15--Meet Jennifer Rosenberg.

The Texas woman used her 12-year-old daughter as a designated driver so that she could be chauffeured to a Longview bar to celebrate her 35th birthday. Rosenberg was arrested Wednesday night after her child was pulled over by cops for a traffic violation (the girl told officers she had just dropped her mother off at a bar about two miles from their home).

Longview Police Department officers responded to Leon's Bar and Grill, where they arrested Rosenberg on a child endangerment charge, according to a probable cause affidavit. She was booked into the Gregg County jail, where her mug shot was taken.

It is unclear whether Rosenberg planned on having her daughter ferry her back home after the evening's merrymaking. (2 pages)
