11-Year-Old Takes Cement Mixer on Joyride

Sunday afternoon, police in Dodge Center, Minnesota, pulled over a cement truck for speeding. When they saw a juvenile at the wheel, he took off again. The unnamed 11-year-old had stolen the cement mixer from a construction site. A chased ensued, in which the truck barreled down city streets at 65 to 70 miles per hour, and hit two police cars before it came to an end

"I betcha he drove around town 6 or 7 different times," said Dodge Center resident Troy Flatness, who witnessed the chase. "He was smiling, hooting and hollering...he was having a good time."

The chase went on for about an hour before the juvenile pulled over on a dead-end street. He jumped out of the cement truck and tried to run, but authorities were able to catch and arrest him.

A state police helicopter was dispatched to track the truck while it raced around town. Neighbors caught a bit of video footage of the cement truck passing at an unusual speed. The boy was taken to juvenile detention.  -via Digg
