Meanwhile in Florida...Shaun Michaelson wanted to be the "cool dad" when he let a 12 year old girl drive his Jeep, 85 miles per hour. Michaelson told authorities that he is friends with the 12 year old's mother and that the juvenile and her friend were staying with him for a few days. The 12 year old asked to drive his Jeep and he thought, "sure...I'll be a cool father." Police noticed the vehicle speeding and then making an illegal U-turn. As the officer followed, the 12 year old girl went 85 mph in a 45 mph zone shortly after midnight, Monday morning.
Police questioned and charged Michaelson when they found the girls to be in possession of vape pens, which Michaelson admitted to buying for the teens because they asked. Michaelson is being held in the Palm Beach County jail.
