AÂ kid in Russia decided to steal a bus last month and take it on a joyride around town. Unsatisfied withÂ tagging, rock throwing,Â or whatever it isÂ eight-year-old boysÂ do on their lunch break at school, Andrey Grimov stole the bus when the driver left the keys in the ignition to go on a break.
According to the U.K.’s Daily Star, the boy drove the bus through a hedge, a field, and across a lawn in Veliky Novgorod, before taking it out on the road.Â Police eventually stopped him by setting up a roadblock. According to the boy’s mother, AndreyÂ said he wasÂ bored andÂ looking forÂ an ‘adventure.’
We seem to recall something like this has happened before in San Francisco in the days before Muni Diaries was around. Anyone remember the details?
