A 5-Year-Old Latino Boy Stole His Parents Car And Told The Police Who Pulled Him Over He Was Buying A Lamborghini

Talk about being resourceful.

In Utah, a 5-year-old boy with a whopping $3 in his pocket took a joy ride in his parents’ car with plans to drive to California. When police pulled him over, he told officers that he wanted to buy a Lamborghini. This was, apparently, after his mother refused to take him to buy the luxury car when he asked her to buy him one.

According to reports, a trooper saw the SUV (driven by the boy) weaving on Interstate 15 at 30 mph.

In the dash-camera footage of the encounter, Trooper Rick Morgan addressed the kid saying “How old are you? You’re 5 years old?… Wow … Where did you learn to drive a car?”

Speaking to KSL-TV, Morgan said that when he pulled the kid over, he had to help him get the SUV into park mode. “He was sitting on the front edge of the seat so that he could reach the brake pedal to keep the car stopped while I was standing there,” Morgan explained.

After being pulled over, the child (identified as Adrian Zamarripa) said that all he wanted to do was drive to California to buy a Lamborghini for himself. Remember that part about the $3 in his pocket?

Right.

According to Morgan, no one was hurt by Zamarripa.

Zamarripa wasn’t able to buy the car, which at a new rate is worth $200,000 but he has been able to drive around the block in them since.

Lamborghini owner Jeremy Neves heard Zamarripa’s story and decided to take him out on a little spin of his own. When news of Neves offer went viral, it wasn’t long before a celebrity luxury car dealer offered to fly him out to California.

According to a report by TMZ, RD Whittington, who is the owner of the brand Wires Only, flew Zamarripa and his family to Los Angels. While at the dealership he was able to sit in Lamborghini, a Ferrari, and a Hummer. The dealership also organized it so that Zamarripa was able to FaceTime with Shaq and Lil Pump and had the chance to meet Jamie Foxx in person.

In response to criticism that their kind gestures might only cause other kids to seek out similar rewards by copying Zamarripa’s behavior, Neves explained “I’m absolutely inspired by the principles that he displayed of success ― knowing what he wants, going after it… Absolutely, I’m not encouraging kids to go out and take their parents’ car, and do anything else that’s illegal. I’m not advocating that at all.”

Of course, Zamarripa, has received quite a bit of positive attention for his actions, this story is not without its consequences. According to CNN, the boy’s parents are punishing him for stealing their car. Fortunately for them, the Weber County District Attorney won’t be pushing to charge his parents with neglect charges.

Getting them to contribute to the house can be helpful.

“Mom of a almost 3 year old boy. It’s so hard to keep him entertained but we we try with some: dancing, signing, having him “shower” his toys, draw, play dough, bike and scooter outside, have him help me cook and clean, wrestle with his dad, (lmao) etc.” – niraarin
