The boy left his home on Friday morning with the family car. He was arrested and taken to Broken Hill Police Station, a city in the far west outback of New South Wales. "His parents reported him missing immediately after he left home, so they were looking for him," Detective Inspector Kim Fehon told News.com.
Cops noticed the boy, who didn't have a license, when they spotted the car bumper dragging on the ground. The car had suffered some damage. "So it appears (the boy) did have an accident while driving," Detective Fehon confirmed to News.com.
The boy managed to avoid suspicion because he looks much older, BBC quoted local media. Cops said the boy was "about six foot tall".
A few days ago, an 8-year-old-boy drove for 1.5 kilometres with his sister because they wanted to get a McDonald's Cheeseburger.
