ST. CHARLES COUNTY (KMOV.com) -

Police say a St. Charles County woman was too drunk to drive so she had her 13-year-son get behind the wheel instead.

Stacy Helton is charged with child endangerment.

According to court documents, her son, 13, offered to drive when he noticed his mom was too intoxicated. Helton is accused of pulling over and letting him take the wheel.

The son was able to drive all the way home, authorities said.

Three other minors were also in the car, authorities said.
