    Two teenagers were found with an open bottle of rum and a 9-year-old boy dressed up as a girl Sunday night after they were pulled over for speeding at North Tyndall Avenue and East University Boulevard, reports stated.

    Police pulled the teenagers over around 8 p.m. and saw a half full bottle of rum at the passenger’s feet. There was a 9-year-old sitting on the passenger’s lap.

    The passenger admitted to drinking and said the rum was his. He said the 9-year-old was his sister.

    When police asked the child for a name, the child gave a girl’s name. Police called the 9-year-old’s mother so the child could be picked up.

    The mother told police she did not have a daughter and had two sons. Police told the mother the 9-year-old had long hair and was wearing a dress.

    The mother told police her older son was a cross dresser and said he had probably dressed up the boy. She said her younger son was probably wearing a wig. Police removed the 9-year-old’s wig and saw he was a boy.

    The boy apologized for lying and said he had dressed himself.

    The two teenagers were cited for having an open container of alcohol in a car. The older brother was also cited for underage drinking.
