June 25, 2012 (ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.)

The 11-year-old could barely see over the steering wheel but that didn't stop him.

It happened in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

At one point, the boys all crouched down after one thought he saw a police officer. They even got out of the car to hide but then got back in and kept going.

The boys were caught and face criminal charges in juvenile court.
