A 12-year-old Michigan boy went for a joyride in a stolen forklift and dodged police and deputies before eventually being arrested Saturday evening, according to the Ann Arbor Police Department.

Around 6:45 p.m. Saturday, Ann Arbor Police were dispatched to Forsythe Middle School on reports of a juvenile trying to steal a construction vehicle, according to a post on their Facebook page. 

Officers said just a few minutes after receiving the call, the vehicle in question was seen driving without lights. 

A pursuit ensued and officers began chasing the boy, going roughly 15 to 20 miles per hour.
