BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - An 11-year-old has been arrested after allegedly stealing a school bus and taking it for a joyride.
Police say the young boy took the bus from Progress Head Start in the 300 block of Elmer Street. The Baton Rouge Police Department says the bus belongs to a private owner who subcontracts with Head Start. A spokesperson for BRPD says they believe the bus is a push to start.
Joy Gradney videoed the chase on her cell phone. She says she was not expecting such a young person to zoom past her.
“As he got closer and closer and closer, I saw it’s a little boy in there and he was laughing. He was like giggling on the way across Florida as he goes right past me. I’m like I can’t believe it’s a little boy,” said Gradney.
