    7 year old takes car, goes on 20 mile drive

    Barefoot and wearing pajamas, the boy was too small to even see over the steering wheel of the car.
    But that didn't stop him. The 7-year-old Sheridan Township boy reportedly stood up on the floorboard of his stepfather's red Pontiac Sunfire, gripping the wheel with his hands and accelerating with one foot on the gas pedal.
    The boy's jaw-dropping 20-mile ride, which ended when police got him to stop by boxing him in near the bridge over the Pigeon River outside Caseville, was all motivated by one thing according to police.
    "He was crying and just kept saying he wanted to go to his dad's," Caseville Police Chief Jamie Learman said. "That was pretty much it: He just wanted to go to his dad's."
