Police in Ontario Canada, pulled over a driver Tuesday after someone called in an anonymous complaint: A 2-year-old passenger riding shotgun, was strapped to a 30-can case of beer, in lieu of a vehicle seat. Authorities believe the driver used the case of a beer as a substitute for a booster seat.

The Ontario Provincial Police charged the driver with failing to ensure child properly.

CNNreported that the police later said the beer was factory sealed, so the man was not in violation of open container laws.

Luckily, the two-year-old was unharmed in the incident, but CTV News reports that the Family & Children's Services department was notified and an appropriate auto seat was brought to the site.

The officer then noticed the toddler, who was 2 years old, sitting on a 30-can case of beer in the passenger seat.

In Ontario, like in the USA, children have to be in booster seats until they meet certain age and height requirements.

OPP West provided a chart showing at what ages children require special seating in their tweet.
