3YO Pulled over in battery operated car

A motorised candy-apple red Mustang GT toy carried 3-year-old Jordan Will for a brief ride along a busy stretch of highway. Drivers stopped and neighbours chased down the car until a cop could pull over Jordan and his 2-year-old passenger on Sunday.

"Nothing bad happened, so it's kind of cute now when you look at it," said his father, Doug Will. "But at the time, it wasn't cute at all. It was scary. I was really upset."

The Mustang was decked out with all the extras: a rear spoiler, a premium sound system and chrome wheels. The boys drove the tricked-out ride through their Omro, Winsconsin neighbourhood and pulled up to a busy intersection. "He even obeyed the signs, so that was good. He stopped at the red light and got on the cross walk," said neighbour Jaci Bauer.

Doug Will had been searching for the boys when he got the call from a police officer to come get the car. "He just said, 'We went for a ride, daddy,"' Will said. All Jordan can do now is sit in the little car. His father has taken away the keys and removed the battery.

Now, am I the only one disturbed and apalled by this - read the third paragraph again: "a premium sound system"???? WTF??? In a 3 year old's toy? What the fuck was he listening to thumping out of the bass - Barney the freakin' Dinosaur? Big-Bird sings Johnny Cash? Sheeeesh!

I'm glad he obeyed the signs - so many don't...
