The boy told police that he had left home after his mother refused to buy him a Lamborghini, a luxury car which lower-priced models cost over USD180,000 (RM790,000) which sparked an argument.
His story is that he left home after an argument with Mom, in which she told him she would not buy him a Lamborghini. He decided he'd take the car and go to California to buy one himself. He might have been short on the purchase amount, as he only had $3 dollars in his wallet.

“He decided he’d take the car and go to California to buy one himself,” Utah Highway Patrol said on Twitter. “He might have been short on the purchase amount, as he only had $3 dollars in his wallet.”
In the footage, the officer can then be heard saying “How old are you? You’re five years old?” once he sees the boy.
The boy was sitting at the very edge of the seat to be able to reach the pedals. He had made it about a five minutes’ drive from home.
No-one was hurt in the incident. It will be left to local prosecutors to decide whether to file charges against the parents, according to BBC.
When the incident happened, both parents were at work and he was left in the care of a sibling when he took the car. Police issued a reminder to ensure car keys are not easily accessible to children.
