It raises the question -- can a 2-year-old be charged with public intoxication?
Robert Rasset faces a child endangerment charge after his 2-year-old son was found wandering near 15th Street and Florence Street in Hastings yesterday afternoon with an open Mike Hard's Lemonade in his little hand.

The boy, in fact, was double-fisting -- as KMSP reports, police found the child holding an open bottle of Mike's in one hand and an unopened one in the other.

Police eventually figured out that the boy is Rasset's child and went to his house, where they found him (surprise!) intoxicated. He had previously reported his son as missing.

The boy was wearing no shoes or socks when he was found as police followed up on a report of a child wandering around by himself. After his father was arrested, the youngster was sent to live with his mother.

According to KMSP, police don't know if the little guy actually drank any of the sauce. We hope he didn't, but let's face it -- if there's one alcoholic beverage in the world that would taste good to a 2-year-old's taste buds, it's without question Mike's Hard.

My husband never has to worry about me doing that. I have a terrible temper but never been mad enough to chop anyone into pieces,that would take to much effort. I have threatened to smother him in his sleep if he didn't go to a doctor for his snoring problem,but if I killed him the police would find him exactly where I killed him...."Ain't Nobody Got Time For That"

What kind of loser lets his kid drink Mike's Hard Lemonade? My toddler wanders the neighborhood with a bottle of Basil Hayden's.

what kind of monster drinks "hard lemonade" in the winter? Did he notice his kid was missing or drink was missing first? "where's my drink?" shrugs and opens another

This is horrible, but my first reaction was laughter. Dang parents not teaching kids about proper alcohol consumption...
