From the fresh disturbing traffic reports reaching us, six kids aged 11 to 15, were arrested recently by the St. Paul police for driving around a stolen car with a BB gun. The incident occurred when the officers on patrol saw a Toyota Camry that was reported stolen around 5.45 pm in St. Paul.

The 15-year-old, girl who was behind the wheel of the stolen car, drove away from the police at a speed of 40 mph. She was able to avoid the tire-deflation drive put in the road by another police officer.
Afterwards, she accelerated and crashed into another car close to Kent Street and Edmund Avenue. Every one of them in the car, including two 13 year-olds, three 11-year-old and a 15-year-old decided to evade arrest by trying to escape from the scene on foot. Unfortunately for them, they were all apprehended and taken into police custody. The police revealed that the only occupant in the vehicle they crashed into did not sustain any injury.
Meanwhile, a 5-year-old boy was caught behind the wheel of a car on the highway. See the clip below:

The medics arrived at the scene and checked the children for any injuries. The driver (15) was taken to the Juvenile Detention Center for attempting to run from the police and motor vehicle theft. The 13-year-old was charged for possession of a BB gun, while the other four kids were identified and sent to responsible adults.
Kids these days are beginning to show their different wild and reckless sides, which should be a big concern to parents and guardians alike. Just recently, two kids, aged 9 and 4, were caught behind the wheel of a car after surviving a crash on their way to California. Apparently, they wanted to drive to “swim with the dolphins” on a beach by stealing their parents’ car.
