NBC late-night host Jay Leno is having fun at the expense of an Edina woman accused of making her 11-year-old nephew ride in the trunk of her Lexus so the car's leather seats wouldn't get wet, reports the Edina Patch.
Susan McCarty, 38, was charged with gross misdemeanor child endangerment this week after admitting to police that she made her nephew -- who was soaking wet from a ride at Valleyfair -- ride in the trunk.
During his opening monologue for Thursday night's "Tonight Show," Leno, a noted car collector, said, "And the problem is what?"
See the Leno joke about McCarty below, about a minute and a-half into the clip.
This isn't the first time Leno joked about Minnesotans. In May, the TV talker on his "Headlines" segment mocked the Fergus Falls Daily Journal for its story, Library going high-tech."
