The Baton Rouge Police Department responded to reports of a stolen school bus being driven by a minor.

The 11-year-old is believed to have boarded the bus from Progress Head Start, where he got on the bus and figured out how to get it started. The BRPD believes the bus was a push start.

Dozens of police officers chase the stolen school bus. The minor was handcuffed after he was escorted off the bus. The BRPD says the bus got stopped at 1700 Greenwell Springs Road.

The BRPD charged the 11-year-old with car theft, aggravated flight, three counts of aggravated property damage and aggravated assault.

Officials said they were not sure where the boy took the bus from.
