When a 10-year-old boy led police on a wild 70km car chase in his mother’s vehicle last October, officers might have assumed he’d learnt his lesson.
Yet just over a year later, the same child stole his mum’s car once again on Sunday night before leading a patrol car on another pursuit, according to a Cleveland police report in the U.S.
Officers said the boy had stolen the car at his Brooklyn address after an argument with his mother after she decided to confiscate his PlayStation, Cleveland.com reported.
When his mother noticed her keys were missing, the boy’s father initially started to chase him.
According to police, the boy pulled into a fire station to escape from his father but was detected by a police car. When an officer approached the car, the boy sped off once more.
After a high-speed pursuit lasting 25 minutes, the boy, now aged 11, crashed the car into another vehicle.
He suffered injuries to his hand and wrist and was taken to hospital, Fox8 Cleveland reported.
