Connecticut mom Lisa Nussbaum was arrested after residents reported seeing videos of her 10-year-old child driving her car around town. Nussbaum had streamed the joy rides on Facebook Live.
According to NBC News, Nussbaum was ultimately charged with risk of injury or impairing morals of a minor. She was released on the same day after promising to appear at the Superior Court in Bridgeport, Connecticut one week later.
The child-helmed car was seen on social media driving on public roads. Videos of the incident seem to have been taken down. CT Post reports that Nussbaum could be seen giving directions and instructions to the boy as he exclaims, "This is fun!" He was not wearing a seatbelt and was driving the Jeep Grand Cherokee at a "moderate" speed.
“It was shocking to see somebody so young driving a vehicle on a roadway,” Capt. Keith White of the Monroe Police Department said. “You could see the houses passing by in the background as you were watching the video.”
“People got to be aware that what you put out on social media, people are looking, people are watching, and you could be held accountable for your actions, and your postings,” Capt. White added.
