Witnesses told police that he expertly drove to the fast food joint, following traffic laws and staying under the speed limit.The children got cheeseburgers, chicken nuggets, and fries before they were taken to the police station, where their parents picked them up. No charges were filed in the incident.
“He didn’t hit a single thing on the way there. It was unreal,” Koehler said.
McDonald’s workers said they thought they were being pranked when he drove up to order a cheeseburger with money from his piggy bank.
“The workers thought that the parents were in the back, but obviously they weren’t,” Koehler said.
Police said the 8-year-old burst into tears when he learned that he did something wrong. He told officers that it was his first time behind the wheel.
