Whenever I need to quickly figure out how to do something, I go to YouTube and find instructional videos. It's actually a great resource for that. Turns out that's not ALWAYS a good thing . . .
An eight-year-old kid in East Palestine, Ohio wanted to get some McDonald's on Sunday night after his parents went to sleep. And his master plan was . . . take their van and drive there.
And since he needed to learn how to drive . . . he went to YouTube, watched some videos, and gave it a shot. So he and his four-year-old sister hopped in the car, and headed straight to McDonald's to get some cheeseburgers.
Believe it or not, YouTube educated the kid REALLY well. According to witnesses, he followed all the driving laws, stopped for lights, made perfect left and right turns, and stayed under the speed limit.
But they called the cops on him anyway, and when the officers got there, the kid and his sister were in the McDonald's drive-thru lane about a half mile from their house, ordering food . . . which he paid for out of his piggy bank.
No charges are going to be filed. And the kids DID get to eat their food. (NBC 21 - Youngstown / Gizmodo)
