Florida Man Friday: Self-Proclaimed "Cool Dad" Lets 12 Year Old Drive Jeep Up To 85 MPH

I know what you're thinking, "I just got all the info I need in the title and tweet, what more could there possibly be?"  

Buckle up.  

Just after midnight Monday morning, 41-year-old Shaun Michaelsen of Jupiter Florida, obviously, was seen in the passenger seat of a car making an illegal U-turn.  When the officer attempted to pull the Jeep over, the vehicle sped up to 85 MPH, nearly double the speed limit.  Once able to finally pull the vehicle over, the officer approached the car to find a 12-year-old girl behind the wheel and another in the back seat.  

Officer Craig Yochum asked the little girl why she was driving so fast. which, if I was the cop, is definitely not the first question I'm asking... probably not even in the top ten.  Without hesitation, the driver replied "he told me to" pointing at Michaelsen.  Michaelsen told the cop the little girl asked earlier in the day to drive the jeep and Michaelsen thought "it'd be cool" to let her drive.  He said he was just trying to be a "cool father". 

Now, here's where it gets weird...

Turns out, Michaelsen is NOT the little girl's father, NOR the father of the other little girl in the back seat.  Michaelsen told police that he is friends with the girl's mother and that the little girl and her friend were staying with him for a few days.  There's no report on whether that was confirmed or not, hopefully it was and the mother was located, but if not, THANK GOD they nabbed this fucking creep.  

He's facing multiple felony charges including child neglect and allowing an unauthorized person to drive.  Michaelsen was also charged with causing a minor to become a delinquent after police discovered that he had bought both girls Vape pens, which his simp ass said was at their request.

He's being held without bond in the Palm Beach County Jail.
