"He was driving from side to side, and then he would speed up and slow down, and that's a good indication of an intoxicated person," said Major Derek Towle of the Greenfield Police Department.
Officers were finally able to use spike strips to blow out the car's front tire and bring it to a stop. When they looked inside, there was a 9-year-old boy cowering on the floor in the back.
"This young man was upset 'cause his mom and dad told him it was time to come in," said Towle. "He was upset 'cause they told him he needed to come in and quit playing."
Officers say the boy waited until his parents went to sleep, and then stole the keys out of his mother's purse and took off.
