Boy Caught Driving By Police- Again

Pocatello, ID police got a big surprise when they pulled over a car that was running stop lights and driving erratically. According to KREM 2 News, the driver wasn't drunk- he was 9! As in years old. And this isn't the first time he's been caught taking a Sunday drive (actually on Friday), he's been picked up by police before for taking a joyride in the family truckster.

A man called police after he spotted someone driving erratically. At first, the witness thought the other driver was drunk but when he let the car pass, he saw that a child was driving. The man followed the boy several blocks, as he ran red lights and stop signs.

Police responded, pulled the boy over and released him to his parents. They're still considering whether to cite the boy or his parents. And probably whether they have the authority to ground all three of them.
