A couple were arrested after police spotted them being driven along a busy street by their son aged TEN. The young boy was at the wheel of the family’s high-powered BMW X6 on a road in Spain’s North African enclave of Ceuta. His father was in the passenger seat talking on his phone, while his mother and a sister were in the back seat.
A spokesman for Spain’s Guardia Civil police said: “They were being driven along by a small child who was struggling to see over the dashboard like it was the most normal thing in the world.”
Both parents were arrested at the scene. The father was later charged with being an ‘accomplice to the crime of reckless driving ’ and could face a maximum two-year prison sentence. The boy’s 35-year-old mother was later released without charge.
