( Fox News ) An 8-year-old Ohio boy wanted a cheeseburger so badly, he got behind the wheel of his dad’s van and took matters into his own hands, police said.
The boy said it was simple: He just watched some YouTube videos on how to drive a car, according to investigators. Before long, they said he chauffeured his sister effortlessly to the McDonald’s half a mile from his East Palestine home while his parents were sleeping.
Witnesses said the 8-year-old obeyed all traffic laws like making sure to stop properly at red lights, waiting for traffic to pass before taking a left turn, and staying within the speed limits, Fox 5 reported.
When the two siblings pulled up to the drive-through window with piggy bank money in tow, the McDonald’s workers were convinced this was all a prank.
“The workers thought that the parents were in the back, but obviously they weren’t,” responding patrolman Jacob Koehler told WFMJ.
When confronted by the police, the boy realized he had done something wrong and told Koehler through tears that he just really wanted a cheeseburger, according to the Weirton Daily Times.
The children did get to eat at McDonald’s while they waited for their grandparents to pick them up. No charges are being filed.
Brittany Cater, 23, charged with rape and robbery of a male taxi driver.
- During the ride, police said Jackson pulled a knife on the 29-year-old driver and Carter performed an unspecified sexual act on him.
From Daily Mail:
A 23-year-old woman from Ohio has been arrested and charged with rape and aggravated robbery targeting a male taxi driver.
Brittany Carter, of Freemont, was indicted earlier this month on two first-degree felony counts in connection to the incident that took place in late January.
Carter’s suspected accomplice, 23-year-old Cory Jackson, has been charged with aggravated robbery and complicity to commit rape but remains at large.
According to the Findlay Police Department, at around 4.25am on January 28, Carter and two ‘black males,’ one of them identified as Cory Jackson, called the Trinity Express Cab Service asking to send a taxi to pick them up from the TownPlace Suites hotel on Tiffin Avenue in the city.
During the ride, police said Jackson pulled a knife on the 29-year-old driver and Carter performed an unspecified sexual act on him. The attack took place in the 200 block of Larkins Street in Findlay.
Before the suspects fled on foot, Carter and Jackson allegedly stole $32 from the victim’s pocket.
The driver then went to the police to report the incident and warrants were later issued for Carter and Jackson’s arrests. Their third accomplices has not been named and Hancock County Prosecutor Phil Riegle told The Toledo Blade he does not expect to bring charges against that person.
Fiat Chrysler said Sunday it would spend $1 billion on U.S. manufacturing, including modernizing plants in Michigan and Ohio, in a move that’s set to add 2,000 new jobs, Reuters reported.
According to the company’s plan, the plant in Warren, Michigan will be made capable of producing a pickup truck currently built in Mexico.
The Warren plant will make the new Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer large SUVs. A plant in Toledo, Ohio also will get new equipment to make a new Jeep pickup.
The move by Fiat Chrysler follows a similar recent announcement made by a competing auto brand.
On Tuesday, Ford said it would cancel a $1.6 billion plant planned for Mexico and instead invest $700 million in a Michigan assembly plant. Though CEO Mark Fields said the decision would have gone ahead whether or not Donald Trump was elected president, Fields also said Trump’s “pro-growth policies” gave the company’s executives confidence.

ANOTHER ‘BILL CLINTON IS A RAPIST’ PROTESTER INVADES OBAMA RALLY… THAT’S A QUICK EASY WAY TO MAKE $5K AND SPREAD THE CLINTON DIRT, THANKS INFOWARS!
An obviously frustrated Obama was upset when another ‘Bill Clinton is a rapist’ protester interrupted his rally in Ohio.
“Hold on a second, young man,” Obama said. “Don’t be interrupting everybody, come on.”
Then he tried to overpower the protester by starting up a “Hillary” chant.
“Come on everybody, let’s do our little chant.”
“I noticed this is happening everywhere and I keep on telling folks, you gotta organize your own rallies,”
A black man wearing Bill Clinton ‘rape’ t-shirt from Infowars invades Hillary Clinton’s rally and was escorted out. Hillary gave a wicked cackle laugh as she called for ‘someone to follow the guy’ as he’s kicked out of the room.
Infowars reporter Millie Weaver attended a Hillary Clinton’s rally in Akron, Ohio last Monday night and captured on video of a gurney being wheeled backstage where Hillary Clinton was. Was there another medical episode for Hillary? Later, an angry looking Hillary staff tried to take pictures of Weaver, obviously not happy that another secret gurney event of Hillary once again captured on video. It was also in Cleveland, Ohio, last September where a gurney was seen taken backstage during Hillary’s famous four-minute coughing fit speech.
