File Under: Holy **&%$$@!!

The CoCo Times is reporting that in an attempt to escape a school for troubled kids, an Oakland youth stole a truck and "led police on a 30-mile chase that ended when he drove the wrong way on a highway and was rammed by a highway patrol car." Before he was ultimately apprehended in Ukiah, the article explains, "the chase reached speeds of 85 mph as the young driver evaded a spike strip and crossed several lanes of Highway 101, heading the wrong way toward an exit ramp." That's some seriously bad driving, but don't blame our nation's public school drivers' ed program -- this kid was way too young to enroll. He turned out to be only 12 years old. Whatcha wanna bet the makers of Grand Theft Auto get an earfull after this one?
