What were you occupied with at age 11?

BOUTTE, La. - An 11-year-old boy led police on a chase that reached speeds of more than 160 kilometres an hour, leading to charges for him and his parents, who are accused of letting him drive for months, state police said.

Leona Calloway, 32, and Rodney Brown, 46, were charged with improper supervision of a minor and allowing an unlicensed minor to drive. Officials booked the boy, who was not identified because of his age, with felony flight from an officer, reckless driving, speeding, passing on the shoulder, improper lane usage and having no driver's licence.

Neither the parents nor the boy were jailed, and the child was released to the custody of an aunt, said state police spokesman Joseph Piglia.

The chase started at 6:30 a.m. Friday on Interstate 310 on the outskirts of New Orleans when a state trooper recorded a sport utility vehicle going 130 km/h in a 100-km/h zone, Piglia said.

The trooper turned on his lights and siren and tried to stop the driver, but the boy accelerated, passing several other vehicles on the shoulder and forcing cars off the road, according to state police.

Finally, the boy turned off the interstate and drove to a Burger King restaurant where his mother worked.

State police said the boy was driving home to Boutte from a hospital in Kenner after dropping off his disabled father for an appointment. He had been driving his father around for six months, authorities said.

I personally know a guy in Ukraine who was a head or 'up there' in the department of transportation. His son, at the time was also 11 and he used to dive my family and him around when we went to Yalta. I was always jealous of him because my family couldn't even afford cars at that age (I was 10 or so). But then again that guy was luckier to begin with cause his father had connections with the USSR so obviously it would not even be a problem.

When we came to Canada I begged my mom that she let me drive the car that we had (1987 Sable ) and I just drove it rarely around the parkinglot until I got my licence. It was better than nothing but I was still disappointed. I wish I learned how to drive earlier.

If I had a kid I would teach him to drive in a deserted area or on the track so by the time he is 16 he can be the best driver on the road lol

I drive since i was 10! Bought my first car at caught twice but the cops let me go (this was in Greece) cause i knew them.

"Lo there do I see my father.
Lo there do I see my mother.
Lo there do I see my brothers and my sisters.
Lo there do I see the line of my people back to the beginning.
Lo they do call to me
they bid me take my place among them in the Halls of Valhalla,
where the brave may live forever"
