Five-year-old stopped on US highway wanted to buy Lamborghini, police say

KUALA LUMPUR (May 6): A US trooper stopping a car with a suspected “impaired driver” on a US highway on Monday was bemused to find a five-year-old in the driver’s seat, Reuters reported today.

The report based on a tweet from the Utah Highway Patrol said the trooper saw a vehicle driving slowly and weaving in the left lane of the Interstate 15 freeway.

The trooper turned on his siren, and the driver neatly pulled over to the side of the road.

Reuters reported that a dashboard camera video posted by the police captured the conversation between the trooper and the driver, which has since been viewed on YouTube almost 760,000 times.

“You’re five years old?” the trooper said. “Wow!”

He then asked the child where he learned how to drive and took down other details.

The boy, who was not identified as he is a minor, said he had left home in his parents’ vehicle after arguing with his mother, who had told him she would not buy him a Lamborghini.
