Police were stunned that it was a 10 year old boy and had to confirm it multiple times to assess the situation. One of the highway patrolmen pulled beside the 10-year-old and signaled for him to stop, but instead of complying the little boy shook his head “no” and stepped on the gas even more. He maneuvered his way around Spike strips and even was brave enough to drive into on coming traffic. It was as if he was in a video game one Police officer said. The chase lasted about an hour until the cops decided to clip the car and spin it out of control to apprehend the 10 year old suspect.
The source mentions that prosecutors in Cuyahoga and Erie counties will decide where to file charges.
After spitting at Police while being arrested the boy was taken to the hospital to be looked at and had no minor injuries. Police claim it was video games that encouraged the boy to take the vehicle, what do you think?
