Say What Now? 11-Year-Old Boy Arrested for Stealing School Bus, Leading Cops on a High-Speed Chase [Photos + Video]

An 11-year-old in Louisiana decided he didn’t want to just ride the bus to school — he wanted to drive it.

via TMZ:

The unidentified 11-year-old boy was busted Sunday in Baton Rouge after cops say he somehow managed to start a school bus, and then fled from police when they tried stopping him. What followed, according to authorities, was an intense 45-MINUTE PURSUIT through city streets.

Cops say the kid taunted and flipped off officers as they gave chase, before eventually crashing into a tree. The real miracle here is the kid was okay, and was immediately arrested. Cops say he also hit 3 other vehicles along the way, but no one was seriously hurt.

As for the kid … he was booked on charges of theft of a vehicle, aggravated flight, damage to property and aggravated assault.

Unclear how he got a hold of the keys to begin with — especially since schools would presumably be closed on a weekend, not to mention during a pandemic. What’s really curious is … how the heck he reached the pedals well enough to joyride for almost an hour?!?

This could’ve ended way worse. Also, where were his parents?
