A Louisiana kid put himself in the driver’s seat of a vehicle where he’d normally be a passenger — his school bus — and there’s video of him leading cops on a wild high-speed chase.
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 … you can see from the pics taken by WAFB he was placed in handcuffs at the scene. 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?!?
