Cop Stops 5 Year Old Who Stole Mom's Car After She Wouldn't Buy Him Lamborghini
Ogden, UT – A five-year-old boy was pulled over on the freeway while driving his parents' car after he got into a fight with them because they would not get him a Lamborghini.
So the boy took off in his parent’s vehicle so he could go get one, according to WBTW.
The Utah Highway Patrol initiated a traffic stop because they at first thought the driver was impaired, WBTW reported.
The New York Times reported that the boy swerved in the SUV while travelling at 32 miles-per-hour. The state trooper could not see a head above the seat’s headrest, leading the police to think the driver may have been drunk. (Video below)
But the police discovered it was a five-year-old boy driving.
“You’re 5 years old. Wow!” State Trooper Rick Morgan said according to the dash camera video, the New York Times reported. “OK, where did you learn how to drive a car?”
The boy managed to drive about three miles away from his home.
The boy told the police he left home after his parents told him they weren’t going to buy him the expensive car.
So the boy told police he was driving to California to get a Lamborghini of his own. The New York Times reported that the boy said he had a sister who lived in California.
“He was all set to make the trip,” Trooper Morgan said, according to the New York Times. “It amazed me that when he heard my siren that he did pull over and stop.”
Car And Driver lists 2020 Lamborghini models that have sale prices ranging from $203,995 to as high as $426,000. Police said the boy had just $3 in his wallet, according to WBTW.
Police said the boy’s parents were both at work and the boy’s sister was watching him. KSTU reported the sister fell asleep.
The boy’s parents were looking for their son when they were contacted by police, according to the New York Times.
The parents said the boy had never driven a car before and had never done something like that before.
As of Tuesday, no charges were filed in the case, the New York Times reported.
The next day, Jeremy Nevis drove his own Lamborghini to the boy’s house so the five-year-old could go for a ride in it, according to KSTU.
