‘He had the brightest red hair, you couldn’t miss this little guy.
‘I heard the dad say that he’s lost it for a week, so I don’t think I have to worry about him speeding on the city streets for a week here.’

And his father Kristopher Allen added: ‘I was glad to see him, but the first thing I did was pop the hood, pulled his battery and said you’re grounded.
‘Kids will be kids and things will happen, it is what it is. I’m not mad at him; next time stay in the yard.’
