Ohio boy, 8, craves burger, drives dad's van a mile to McDonald's

How wild would it be to be working the window and see an 8-year-old roll up in a van?

The boy had apparently reached the keys by standing on the tips of his toes, and he took his sister along for the food run.

The children's parents were sleeping at the time, the Weirton Daily Times reported. The total distance the ravenous miniature Bonnie and Clyde drove was about a mile and a half in total.


Police arrived, but not before the children got to eat a cheeseburger and chicken nuggets. So the resourceful lad went onto YouTube, spent five minutes learning how to operate a auto, and then invited his 4-year-old sister to take a spin with him for a meal at McDonald's.

When police showed up the boy started crying because he thought he had done something wrong, it added.

Thanks to the wonderful world of YouTube tutorials, you can learn about nearly anything. The trip was not made alone, as the kid has his four-year-old sister in the back of their father's work van. The children had pooled their piggy bank savings and felt they had enough to cover the cost of the order.


No charges will be filed. Police in East Palestine, Ohio marveled at the fact the young fella managed to drive the roughly 2.5km distance while respecting the rules of the road on Sunday night.

When the child suddenly realized that taking vehicle keys in order to illegally drive was wrong, he burst into tears.

The boy just wanted to buy a cheeseburger at the Market Street restaurant, according to police.


"Honest to god, I've only been a patrolman or a police officer for two years but I don't think I'll have anything like this the rest of my career". "With the way technology is any more kids will learn how to do anything and everything", Jacob said.
