German boy jacks mom's car AGAIN for high-speed joyride
An 8-year-old boy was caught for the second time in a week out joyriding.
DORTMUND, GERMANY — An 8-year-old boy who had already taken his mom's Volkswagen for a quick spin on the German autobahn earlier last week was at it again.
According to CNN, local police said little man borrowed mom's VW Golf last Wednesday for the first time and took it for a short ride on the autobahn, reaching speeds of up to 87 mph.
His mom called to police at 12:25 a.m., letting them know her son had taken the car. He was found by his mom shortly after at a service station along the autobahn about 5 miles from his house.
According to CNN, the boy had parked the vehicle with the hazard lights on and a warning triangle to secure the area.
Apparently, he felt uncomfortable traveling on the faster freeway.
According to DW, Tiny Torreto reportedly told police, "I just wanted to drive a little bit."
After a stern warning, the authorities let him go with no criminal charges.
Thank god, because little guy was able to come across his mom's keys again last Friday, driving from his hometown of Soest to Dortmund, about 30 miles away.
DW reported Speed Racer reportedly hit speeds of 110 mph. Looks like he got over his fear of faster highways.
Police said in a statement, "red traffic lights and traffic laws in general did not seem to interest the driver."
Unfortunately, the boy's sequel hit a few bumps along the way. Police found him in a parking lot along the motorway, where he had a bit of a fender bender with a trailer of a parked truck.
Luckily, no one was hurt. Too bad the same couldn't be said for mom's Golf.
Police said the boy will now have to go to counseling. Counseling? Get this kid a movie roll.
