LAPEER, Mich- A 6-year-old from the Flint area is in trouble with his parents after police say he stole their car over the weekend and took it for a ride. Turns out, he just wanted some Chinese food.

It happened on Saturday morning in the small town of Lapeer. Police say the child took the car keys off the counter while his parents were still sleeping. On the way to get the food, police say the youngster hit a street sign, then diverted his trip to go get the car fixed at a dealership. On the way there, two neighbors blocked him in with their cars until police and the boy’s father could get on the scene.

The boy wasn’t hurt, and never got that Chinese food.

His parents say this is the first and last time he’ll be doing something like this.

    "It's called video games, Dad"

    I'm sorry, but which video game teaches you how to turn a car on and put it into gear? You lost me. More accurately, the boy probably learned how to do those things while watching his parents do it, as they drove him around… thousands of times…

    You're probably right though, let's blame video games.
