7-Year-Old Charged Drives 50 Miles Alone In Car

A 7-year-old Michigan boy who drove a car for 20 miles, sometimes hitting speeds of 50 mph, was charged Wednesday with unlawful use of a vehicle. The prosecutor in the case said he filed the charge to get the boy and his family some assistance, such as counseling, although I suspect what he needs is discipline. Or a scholarship. If he can drive that far at seven, who's to say what he could do with a little guidance? The Idaho Press Tribune has the story.
