    7 yr old takes car to avoid Church

    On a mission: Utah 7-year-old takes car, goes for joyride to avoid Sunday trip to church - OrlandoSentinel.com

    PLAIN CITY, Utah (AP) Police in Utah say a 7-year-old boy led officers on a car chase in an effort to avoid going to church.

    Dispatchers received reports of a child driving recklessly on Sunday morning. Weber County Sheriff's Capt. Klint Anderson says one witness said the boy drove through a stop sign.

    Anderson says two deputies caught up with the boy and tried unsuccessfully to stop the Dodge Intrepid in an area about 45 miles north of Salt Lake City. The car reached 40 mph before the boy stopped in a driveway and ran inside a home.

    Anderson says when the boy's father later confronted him, the boy said he didn't want to go to church. The boy is too young to prosecute and no citations were issued, although police did urge the father to make his car keys more inaccessible to children.

    That's a gutsy kid...I satwthe vid on Fox News. If you watch the extended police cam vid, this kid drives quite a ways...not too bad of a driver either. In fact, he handles a car better than a lot of 'seniors' down here in FL.

    I bet he'll be attending church for quite a while now...with a front row seat.

    Agreed. If he hates going that badly, I'd find out why, and try to remedy the situation. (And no, not beat the *$&% out of him.)

    Considering his reaction I would seriously look into why he didn't want to go.
    I know not what this "overkill" means.
