BALSAM LAKE, Wis. (AP) - A Wisconsin couple is facing criminal charges after authorities say they found the two highly intoxicated in their pickup truck and the woman’s 9-year-old daughter behind the wheel.

Jason Roth and Amanda Eggert have pleaded not guilty to charges in Polk County Circuit Court.

KMSP-TV (https://bit.ly/1PfUgeU ) reports the two were arrested about a week ago after authorities got a 911 call about erratic driving. A deputy caught up with the vehicle at a boat launch along the Apple River. Deputy Jeff Hahn testified he was stunned to see a young girl behind the wheel and the couple’s baby in a car seat.

The parents face charges of recklessly endangering safety and neglecting a child. Eggert is also charged with battery to an EMT and a firefighter, as well as disorderly conduct.
