Boy Broke Law to Avoid Church

Boy Takes Car to Skip Church

A seven year-old boy led officers on a car chase in an effort to avoid going to church.

Witnesses reported a child driving recklessly Sunday morning. Two officers caught up with the boy and tried unsuccessfully to stop the Dodge Trepid. The car reach 40mph before stopping in a driveway, with child fleeing inside the home.

When confronted, the boy said he didn’t want to go to church reports the Associated Press.|welcome|dl2|link5|

Jeez, what was he trying to avoid? The sermons aren’t that long.

Let’s just say, he should be happy that he is not my son. He would be punished until he is old enough to drive and would be attending daily mass, not just Sunday.
