10-year-old steals car, claims to be a dwarf

A 10-year-old from Norway hit the headlines after he stole his family's car and drove more than 10km.
According to reports, the boy had gotten up in the early hours of the morning, bundled his little sister in to the back seat of his parents' car and then set out through thick snow for his grandparents' house more than 60km away.

He had managed to drive more than 10km before the poor weather conditions proved too much and the car skidded off the tarmac. When a snowplow driver came across the vehicle and checked to see if anyone had been hurt, the boy came out with an unquestionably bizarre excuse for his predicament.

"The boy told the snowplow driver that he was a dwarf and that he had forgotten his driver's licence at home," said police spokesman Baard Christiansen. "We have talked to (the parents), and I'm pretty sure they're going to pay very close attention both to their children and to their car keys in the future."

I like this kid ... but ya, keep an eye on him. oop! where'd he go now!? He's like Carl from The Walking Dead. They can never find him and he's always going off on a mission that's dangerous and life-threatening!

What a cracking excuse!! Boy, 10, steals parents' car to visit grandparents 68 miles away... then tells police he is a dwarf who has forgotten his licence * Boy, 10, put his 18-month old sister in car and drove to visit grandparents * Made it 10kms before veering off the snowy Norwegian road * Told police he was a dwarf who forgot his driver's licence * The children were uninjured and the car was undamaged Oh sh**! That should never happen again but the little boy is at least smart and likable as he wanted to visit grandma+grandpa with his little sister to eat some cookies there. PS: I want to... [More]

Ironically if I was caught stealing a car my defence would be that I was a ten year old.
