Highway Police Pull Over Five-Year-Old En Route to LA to Buy Lamborghini [Photos]

He took off to purchase it with $3 in his wallet

A 5-year-old boy shocked a Utah state trooper when he was pulled over for stealing his parents’ car.

Taking to Twitter on Monday, the Utah Highway Patrol revealed the child had left his home in his parent’s car after an argument with his mother because she “would not buy him a Lamborghini.”

“He was upset and on the verge of tears, and it was short, one-word answers that he gave,” Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Rick Morgan told ABC7 News. “His parents said that he had not driven before. This was the first time that he did anything like this.”

The unidentified thief reportedly slipped by a sibling while his parents were at work, took hold of the car keys, and “set out for California to buy one for himself,” per the news source.

“He might have been short on the purchase amount, as he only had $3 dollars in his wallet.,” read the tweet from the Utah Highway Patrol.

He made it about two miles from his home before being caught on the highway.

Social media users were taken aback by the age of the culprit, as one posted, “How many 5 year olds have a wallet with any money in it at all? How does a 5 year old know how to drive? (not just steer),” and another shared, “age 5? This man looks like he’s got a 9-5 and a family waiting for him back home.”

In the video from the dashboard camera, the officer can be heard saying, “How old are you? Five? Wow.”

“Wow,” indeed.
