"She went in the bathroom and he took the key and took off with the vehicle", he said. He said he wants people to know that the boy's mother is a good parent and they are working together to make sure he gets the help he needs.

According to officers, this isn't the first time the child has gotten in trouble for stealing a auto. The boy's most recent joyride was discovered by police, when they noticed a auto speed past another vehicle on Interstate I-90, just west of Cleveland.

The Highway Patrol says Westlake police began the pursuit on Interstate 90 west of Cleveland and that the boy then drove at speeds reaching 100 miles per hour on the turnpike. After the driver failed to stop, officers with the Westlake Police Department pursued the vehicle.

Dashcam footage from Ohio State Highway Patrol shows cop cars pin the boy in before forcing him out of the vehicle.

Troopers used a rolling roadblock to try and slow him down. The pursuit ended when a trooper nudged the boy's auto into a sign on a grassy berm and prevented him from returning to the roadway.

The auto was taken Thursday morning in Cleveland. "One of the troopers made visual contact eye-to-eye contact with the child and motioned for him to pull over, and the child physically shook his head no and continued driving".

"It was very lucky no one was hurt", Hoffman said.

Lt. Richard Reeder said the boy kicked and spat at them off camera, reports cleveland.com.

On Oct. 16 he took his mom's 2013 Dodge Charger from the driveway and was later found driving with three flat tires on Interstate 90, the TV station reported.

The boy was taken to a hospital accompanied by a legal guardian, the Highway Patrol said. The boy is now in the care of Erie County Children Services. Police will consult with county prosecutors about possible charges.

Christopher Hampton, the child's father, told News 5 his son stole the auto the second time because he got away with it the first time.

No one was injured during the incident.
