Police chase 10 year old who stole bus

Here's a bus chase in Arkansas I think, where a 10 year old stole a bus. I have a 9 year old boy. If he ever stole my bus and let the police on a 40 mile chase, I'd kick his butt when I got a hold of him!

Re: Police chase 10 year old who stole bus

i think he could have kept going till he ran out of fuel if he wanted too.

they said something about him "missing" the spike strips. I wonder if that was the case or if spike strips aren't effective against bus tires.

Not that I plan on high speed chases. But that would be cool and mean our tires could resist nails and screws. But alas our our tires aren't bulletproof. I have seen nails take down bigger tires.



Great story!!!!

I had a nail take down one of my tires. They are pretty darned tough, but the right nail in the right place with the right amount of evil willpower will do the trick.

I wonder where he picked that up?

no idea... he is also pretty good for a 6 year old playing battlefield 1942..gets me into trouble every so often on the servers I hang out on. (he has a habit of killing everyone, not just the bad guys)
