An Alabama 8-year-old was charged with first-degree robbery and attempting to elude after allegedly fleeing police in a vehicle he stole, officials say.
Alabama officials charged an 8-year-old boy for his involvement in an armed carjacking and police chase.
Authorities were responding to the report of a robbery on Tuesday but later discovered that the vehicle was stolen by an 8-year-old, Montgomery Police told Inside Edition Digital.
When police attempted to pull the stolen vehicle over, the young boy refused to stop and a pursuit ensued, according to police.
During the chase, a two-car collision occurred involving the stolen vehicle, but luckily there were no injuries, police said.
The boy was taken into custody and has since been charged with first-degree robbery and attempting to elude.
Police said a weapon was recovered from the scene and also charged the boy with certain persons forbidden to possess a firearm.
The 8-year-old is being held at the Montgomery County Jail.
