???The tiny speed freak ‘borrowed’ his stepfather’s car and took it on a 20 mile, 70mph joyride to visit his dad, who lived 12 miles away in northern Michigan.
The unnamed fugitive was so small that he had to stand up barefoot behind the wheel so he could steer and work the pedals. When police finally caught up with him, the runaway broke down in tears and told cops he ‘just wanted to go to his dad’s!’
The drama unfolded on June 20 when another roaduser spotted the VERY underaged driver. The man told police, “Uh, yes, I’m on Kinde Road outside of Caseville, and believe it or not, I just passed about a five, six-year-old kid flying down the road with a red Pontiac Sunfire. He’s going to go in a ditch pretty quick. … He’s going pretty fast.”
The boy was found upset, but unharmed and told officers he was just trying to find his dad!
Thank God no-one got hurt, HollyMoms!
