Oh man…

There are so many reasons why this story is not funny…but so many more reason that it is.

Michael Smith, 54, of 19 Dower Road, was charged with drunken driving, risk of injury to a minor and failure to drive in the proper lane after he allegedly crashed into a utility pole on Rye Street about 3 a.m. Sunday.

Police charged Smith with risk of injury to a minor because they learned his wife and 4-year-old child were in the car at the time of the crash. The woman walked home with the child, then returned to the accident scene, with their child, in another car, police said.

I feel terrible, really, for laughing at this.
