It was a case of grand theft auto, but what the Police weren’t expecting, was for the driver to be a toddler!
A 3 year old boy, wearing only a diaper, decided to cure his boredom by climbing into a Jeep and managed to knock it out of gear, sending him and the vehicle rolling down the street, through an intersection and into the side of a house.
Unfazed by the adventure, the boy then toddled back home to watch cartoons while residents and Police cleared up the minor damage and looked into the incident.
An officer found the boy back at his home, happily watching cartoons as if nothing had ever happened.
The toddler’s parents were not home at the time and the relative left in charge of the boy was sleeping. The 22 year old was reprimanded by Police for failing to watch the child in his care.
Thankfully no one was hurt, and damaged to the car and house was relatively minor, but the incident could have ended much worse and is a warning that children must be supervised at all times.
