    Cops Pull Over Boy, 3, Driving Along Highway in Toy Mustang GT

    OMRO, Wis. — The candy-apple red Mustang GT is just a toy, but that didn't stop 3-year-old Jordan Will from taking his battery-operated wheels for a brief ride along a busy stretch of highway.

    Drivers stopped and neighbors chased down the car until an officer could pull over Jordan and his 2-year-old passenger on Sunday.

    "Nothing bad happened, so it's kind of cute now when you look at it," said his father, Doug Will. "But at the time, it wasn't cute at all. It was scary. I was really upset."

    The Mustang is decked out with all the extras: a rear spoiler, a premium sound system and chrome wheels.

    The boys drove the tricked-out ride through their Omro neighborhood and pulled up to a busy intersection.

    "He even obeyed the signs, so that was good. He stopped at the red light and got on the cross walk," said neighbor Jaci Bauer.

    Very true! My neighbor's grandson has one of these types of cars, it even has XM satellite radio! I joked with my five-year-old daughter that she had just had her first date in a car with a boy!

    If the kids had been hit by a car, you can be sure the parents would be.

    Wow. I just have to disagree with the dad. I don't find it cute at all. I'm guessing lots of parents wouldn't.

    Miniature versions of the real cars. Look at Toys R Us, that's where I've seen them.

    I wonder if this will be counted as a moving violation and cause his insurance to go up?
    Maybe he could go to traffic pre-school to keep it off his record.
