SEE IT: 11-year-old boy takes school bus on joyride

An 11-year-old boy led police on a nine mile across the north end of Baton Rouge in a stolen school bus Sunday morning, WBRZ reported.

The joyride ended in Central, Louisiana, at about 11:30 when the bus hit a tree.

The juvenile was taken into custody and faces several charges, including theft of a motor vehicle, aggravated flight, three counts of aggravated damage to property, and aggravated assault — the assault charge because he appeared to be “purposely trying to strike a vehicle.”

Police said he also flipped his middle finger at officers as he passed them.

The boy took bus, which belonged to a private owner, from Progress Head Start, police said. It had a push-to-start ignition, and officers believe the boy couldn’t reach the pedals and stood up to drive.
