Latarian Milton, a young boy from Palm Beach Gardens in Florida, stole a car and took it on an eight minute joyride today. The seven year old swiped his grandmother’s keys while she wasn’t looking and went to “get in a high speed chase”, in his own words. Along the way he hit two parked cars, two moving cars and numerous signs and mailboxes before crashing into a ditch.
What the hell? Aged seven I could read perfectly, and ride my bike pretty well. I could even pull some mean tricks on a skateboard at that age, but I certainly couldn’t drive a car.
I’d just like to point out to all the idiots of the world that this happened the day before Grand Theft Auto 4 was released worldwide. It had nothing to do with the game. The child hasn’t played it because it isn’t out yet. Yes I know it’d make a great comparison, but twisting the space/time continuum simply to have a go at a game you’ve never played is ridiculous so stop before you begin.
