(Newswire.net— November 8, 2018) — An 11-year-old boy sped away from home in his mum’s car. Chased unsuccessfully by his father, the boy managed to dodge Cleveland police for an hour, Russia Today reports.
It was the boy’s second high-speed car chase in 13 months, the police reported.
After the boy’s mother forbade the use of the Play Station gaming console, the little tearaway stole her 2013 Dodge Durango and sped away. The mother was unaware that her son was missing until she received a call from the boy’s father, who had seen the child heading towards the city center.
The father chased his son, but he lost him during a speed chase after the boy pulled into an abandoned fire station, Cleveland.com reported.
The police joined the pursuit after a nearby police officer approached the boy to see if he needed help, but the fugitive panicked and kicked the pedal to the metal.
Reportedly, the boy was speeding at over 90mph, blasting past stop signs, and at one point even driving on the wrong side of the road.
Hitting 100mph, the boy refused to stop for police, and led them on a chase through three counties. After an hour of weaving in and out of traffic and avoiding police traps, the boy lost control over his mom’s SUV and slammed into a parked truck. Surrounded by police, the boy exited the smashed car and collapsed.
Luckily, no one was injured. After being treated in a hospital for minor scrapes and cuts to his hand and wrist, the boy was arrested. He told the police he crashed because he was distracted by the police and not paying attention to the road.
The boy told his mother that the reason for his behavior was boredom and aggravation because his mum took away his Play Station. Reportedly, this is not the first time the juvenile was speeding away from home by means of mum’s stolen car. In October 2017 he was stopped by the police after stealing mum’s car. He drove of road through grass after he blew tires on the car stolen from his mother.
The mother told the police that the boy suffers from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, bipolar disorder and oppositional defiant disorder. Not long ago, his behavior could be filed under plain rudeness and the long list of “disorders” would not bail him out of felony charges. He faced similar charges last year, but was ruled incompetent to stand trial.
