Sometimes, life imitates art.
Police in Blackpool, U.K. pulled over an 11-year-old boy who was driving a car around a public parking lot.
According to the police, the boy was accompanied by an adult relative who was sitting in the passenger seat of the vehicle. Apparently the relative had been so exhausted with the pre-teen’s obsession with the game Grand Theft Auto, that they wanted to show the boy how to drive for real.
Grand Theft Auto is a single-player video game where players can control different characters and commit crimes without consequences. Heists are pulled off with violence and chaotic driving gameplay.
The adult was issued a traffic offense, but the boy was not charged, says Fox News. The minimum age to obtain a driver’s license in the U.K. is 17.
