Boy, 6, stole car to get Chinese mealA six-year-old boy is in trouble in the US after he took the family car for a 6am drive - because he wanted a Chinese takeaway.
The unnamed youngster, who could hardly see over the dash, was stopped by police three miles from his home near Detroit, Michigan.
He told officers he wanted more of the food he'd eaten the previous night - but when he got to the restaurant he found it was shut.
Driving off, he hit a traffic sign and decided to make his way to the repair shop.
But other drivers, who spotted his Ford Taurus swerving down the highway, dialed 911 before boxing him in to halt his progress.
By the time police arrived, another motorist had pulled the keys out of the ignition, The Detroit Free Press reports.
"I don't know how he was able to operate everything and see at the same time," said Lapeer County sheriff's deputy Karl Sapp.
Deputy Sapp said the boy's father had no idea his son had taken the car until he was woken up by police.
