This kid will go far in life—or end up in jail: Earlier this week, a 10-year-old stole his parents' car, crashed it into a snowy ditch, and then told responding police officers he was a dwarf who'd forgotten his driver's license.
Early Wednesday morning while his parents were sleeping, the kid reportedly put his 18-month-old sister in the car and took off, hoping to make it to his grandparent's house—some 38 miles away from the boy's home in Dokka, Norway.
He made it about six miles before driving off the road into a ditch. He was found not long after by a snowplow driver, who called the cops.
"The boy told the snowplow driver that he was a dwarf and that he had forgotten his driver's license at home," said Baard Christiansen, a spokesman for the Vest Oppland police district, according to the Independent. The children were not injured in the crash, and there was no damage to the car.
"The parents woke up and discovered that the children were missing and that someone had taken off with their car. They were pretty upset, as you can imagine," he added. "We have talked to them, and I'm pretty sure they're going to pay very close attention both to their children and to their car keys in the future."
Christiansen said no charges would be filed.
