HONG KONG - A 10-year-old boy was briefly detained by police for driving his father's HK$1.6 million Maserati GranTurismo coupe on Monday. He first hit a vehicle in the car park, but continued down a busy road for 300 metres before stopping. A passer-by called the police. The boy was arrested for driving without a licence and the act was labelled a theft. If found guilty, the boy could face up to seven years in jail, but police think that is unlikely.
