Ten-year-old joyrider claims to be dwarf

Got to give the youngster 10/10 for his story / initiative



A ten-year-old Norwegian boy took his toddler sister for a joyride in the family car, ending up in a snowy ditch posing as a dwarf, police and media reports said Wednesday.

The children had travelled around ten kilometres (six miles) towards their grandmother's house when a snowplough driver saw the automatic car stuck in a ditch on a quiet country road in south-eastern Norway, according to the police, who were informed at around 6am.

"This seems to have happened on an impulse. He woke up at night, his sister was also awake and he decided to take her for a ride," said Kai Lyshaugen, a local police officer in the southern region of Vestoppland.

According to the Norwegian daily Dagbladet, the boy told the snowplough driver that they were on their way to their grandmother's house about 30 kilometres away.

He later told another snowplough operator that he was a dwarf and had wound up in the ditch when making a hasty U-turn to go home for his driving licence.

The young boy and his 18-month-old sister, who was sitting on the passenger seat without a seat belt, were unharmed and cheerful when they were found.

"He asked for help to tow his vehicle so they could continue their journey," Lyshaugen said.



Police returned the children safely to their parents.

His parents can't wait for grandchildren!

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?

At it again .

Just last week, we brought you the story of a rather odd but inventive 10-year old Norwegian boy who stole his parents car and strapped his toddler sister in for a drive to his grandmother's house--but got stuck in a ditch and impersonated a dwarf along the way. Now he's stolen another car and gotten caught again.

This time the boy didn't attempt the dwarf routine, and the townspeople of Dokka, in the Oppland region of Norway north of Oslo, didn't take his antics lightly, either. The boy stopped along the way, and bystanders promptly snatched the car keys from him, reports Reuters.

The boy's second trip lasted quite a bit longer, however, getting 19 miles from his starting point--his aunt's house--with a different car. He didn't take his young sister along for the ride this time, either. Despite the longer drive (the last one lasted about 6 miles), the boy was still about 20 miles short of his destination, which was once again his grandmother's house.

Police are taking this second round of theft and underage driving more seriously, referring the boy's family to child services. As much as we understand the urge to get out on the open road--whatever your age--we certainly hope the authorities can talk some sense into the kid. His story is starting to sound like the early years of notorious serial train hijacker Darius McCollum.
