    Law enforcement in Lapeer, Michigan, had an unusual run-in on Saturday morning. A six-year-old had taken his dad's car to go pick up some Chinese food.
    The Detroit News reports that concerned witnesses called the the cops to report a car that was driving erratically. The paper reported, "They told police when they called that it looked like a 6-year-old was driving the car," said Sgt. Andy Engster of the Lapeer County Sheriff's Department. "And they were exactly right."
    Police responded but not before other drivers boxed in the young Chinese food enthusiast with their own cars. One of the civilians then reached into the six-year-old's car, turned off the ignition and (wisely) removed the keys.
    The boy told police that he had taken the keys from the counter and that his previous experience behind the wheel was nonexistent. "He said he'd never even sat on his dad's lap to steer the car or anything," Engster said.
    The boy also told police that he had hit a street sign near his home. After seeing the damage, he figured he needed to drive to the car dealer for repairs. It was unclear if the boy was planning on eating first. Also unclear: How the boy planned to pay for the food, much less the car repairs.
    The police spoke to the boy's father, who was asleep at the time. "He didn't even know (his son) was gone," Engster said. An investigation is ongoing, according to the Detroit News.
