An 11-year-old boy in SeaTac is safe and with his mom after he stole a car and led police on a car chase, according to tweets by the King County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies say they spotted the boy driving recklessly around 3:45 p.m. and followed him until they could nudge the boy’s car sideways near South 167th Street and Highway 99.

A tweet by the department said the boy was “driving extremely recklessly” before being stopped.
