Police in Utah were in for a shock when they spotted an erratic driver recently. After following the white Dodge Intrepid for a spell, the pursuing officers watched as the driver parked the car, jumped from behind the wheel and ran into his father's house. Standard fare, you say? Not quite.

The driver was actually a seven-year-old boy who had pilfered his dad's keys to skip out on going to church. The officers opted to let the parents handle disciplining the youngster rather than subject him to the legal system, but cautioned the dad to keep his car keys in a more secure location in the future.

Good call.

You can check out video from the chase for yourself below. The police say the kid did a pretty good job of keeping the car under control, but did run one stop sign. As Ricky Bobby would say, "I wanna go fast."

UPDATE: As it turns out, this video is anything but new. A few readers pointed out the same video was used in a news report uploaded to YouTube in 2009.

      This boy was 7 by the time of this video. I think he's old enough to be a licensed driver now...

      Maybe God will forgive him, but Dad will take time. As a car nut myself, I know that cars are the devils seductive tool to a man's soul. Now where did my wife hide that rent money? She knows I need a new set of rims, damn it !

      I saw this same video a long time ago. Why are they dredging up ancient stories? Oh wait..... they can\'t find anything new on the internet? Hell...even if all they have is google they should be able to search better than this
