In the kid's defense, at least he didn't wake his parents on a Sunday night to go get him some Cheerios. But he must have real had a terrible craving for the cereal to take the drastic measures he took that night.

A 10 year old kid from Stillwater took police on a chase, according to, driving his parents minivan on a Sunday night.  The boy claimed he took the van and was on a quest to score some Cheerios.  Understandable, right?

He might have completed his mission but Stillwater Police spotted the 10 year old in the minivan around 9:30 Sunday night.  The kid wasn't about to scrap his mission and took off, leading Stillwater Police on a chase with speeds reaching up to 50 mph.

At one point during the chase, the kid actually drove the minivan though an intersection in reverse.  That's right, in reverse. Tricky, "Hey coppers, which way am I going now?"

Seems the boy had a fairly valid excuse.  He was headed to Target or a co-op in downtown Stillwater to score a box of Cheerios for breakfast.  I personally, must commend the lad for being so self sufficient and taking it upon himself to make sure there were Cheerios for his breakfast in the morning.

The kid's parents told the police that they were both asleep when the boy took the van on his little errand.  They told police that they had absolutely no idea that the van was missing and that the boy had taken it.

I'm guessing these parents will make sure they are all stocked up on Cheerios in the future.

And congrats to the kid for scoring his very first police chase at the young age of 10, let's hope it's his last!

Stacker used data from the 2020 County Health Rankings to rank every state's average life expectancy from lowest to highest.

Many of the included towns jump out at the casual observer as popular summer-rental spots--the Ozarks' Branson, Missouri, or Arizona's Lake Havasu--it might surprise you to dive deeper into some quality-of-life offerings beyond the beach and vacation homes. You'll likely pick up some knowledge from a wide range of Americana: one of the last remaining 1950s-style drive-ins in the Midwest; a Florida town that started as a Civil War veteran retirement area; an island boasting some of the country's top public schools and wealth-earners right in the middle of a lake between Seattle and Bellevue; and even a California town containing much more than Johnny Cash's prison blues.
