An 11-year-old boy in Cleveland is facing charges after taking police on a high-speed chase Sunday night after his mother took away his PlayStation.
The boy, whose name was not released by police, stole his mother’s 2013 Dodge Durango around 10:45 p.m. on Sunday after they got into an argument that led to her taking away his PlayStation, according to Cleveland.com.
She went to bed after the argument, only to be awakened by a phone call from the boy’s father, who said he saw their son driving the SUV.
The boy drove recklessly, reaching speeds above 70 mph, until he crashed the SUV into a parked truck, according to local station WEWS TV.
He was taken to a local hospital, where he was treated for minor injuries.
It was the second time in 13 months the boy took the family’s car out for an illegal joyride, Cleveland.com reported.
