11-Year-Old Steals School Bus, Leads Cops on 45-Minute Chase


An 11-year-old boy has been arrested after stealing a school bus and leading police on a chase in Louisiana.

According to the Baton Rouge Police Department, the incident happened after the unidentified boy stole the bus from a private owner who subcontracted with a local elementary school.

BRPD spokesman L'Jean McKneely says police chased the boy for 45 minutes, as he allegedly taunted officers, flipping one off as he drove by.

The chase eventually came to an end when the boy lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a tree in a person's front yard.

He left the scene unhurt, but another driver that was struck suffered some minor injuries.

McKneely says when the boy was asked by police why he stole the bus, he replied, "Just to do it."

The child is facing several felony charges including theft of a vehicle, aggravated flight, three counts of damage to property, and one count of aggravated assault
