LEA COUNTY, NEW MEXICO - He's only 13 years old, but a Lea County boy is charged with DWI after police found him passed out in a car.

The car was on the side of the road with the engine running on Friday.

Officers say they had to carry him out, because he was too drunk to walk.

The 13-year-old's breath test was nearly twice the legal limit at 1.5.

Not long after, police received a call about an intoxicated 17 year old girl passed out on the counter at an Alsup's.

She says the two were at a party together.
