PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) - Authorities in western Kentucky say a
12-year-old boy took his parents' car and drove up to 85 miles per
hour in it.
The Paducah Sun reported that the parents called the McCracken
County Sheriff's Office about 11:30 a.m. Sunday and told a
dispatcher what happened.
The newspaper reported a deputy spotted the car, but broke off
following it after the boy sped away. Officers saw the car minutes
later and blocked it, arresting the young driver, who was taken to
the McCracken County Juvenile Detention Center.
