7-year-old boy ticketed in Galveston for driving golf cart

Remember when your parents let you do stuff that you were way too young to do? Sip a beer? Sneak onto a roller coaster despite being too short? Drive a car?

A 7-year-old boy was vacationing in Galveston, Texas, last week with his family. His mom was letting him drive a golf cart around the island where they vacation every year. The fun ended abruptly when a Galveston police officer stopped the boy and said he was going to cite him for driving without a license -- not the mom, but the kid. A golf-cart driver must be 16 or older in Galveston.

"He made me write my name on the ticket thing," said the boy, C.J. Knight, to KTRK-TV. "I was scared."

The story should have at least a neutral ending, however. Galveston police chief Henry Porretto said the ticket was written by mistake and will work with the family to clear up the issue.
