During a traffic stop of the vehicle, police noticed a 6-year-old female was operating the vehicle while her mother was "sitting in the passenger seat laughing about the incident and stating she was teaching her to drive," records say.
The 6-year-old girl then became upset and began to cry. The girl's aunt arrived while police were conducting the traffic stop.
The aunt reportedly asked the young girl if her mother made her drive the vehicle. The girl replied, "Mom made me drive because she was sleepy," records say.
